Problems, problems

I’m going to have to try to write this post on my iPad as my monitor has developed an intermittent power fault. I say that the monitor has a fault but it may be a dodgy lead. The Kettle-plug connector keeps losing contact so that if I even brush against my desk the monitor turns off. I’ll be seeing if I can borrow a lead off the dealer tomorrow to test where the fault lies.

One of the problems with no monitor access to my desktop is that I also have no access to my photos. By chance I had already uploaded today’s featured image to the WP Media library – the only image that I have not yet used on a post or a page.

The picture is of Trefor Stacks on the Llyn Peninsula of North Wales, UK. It was taken a couple of weeks ago on a sunny day and using a 150 mm ten stop Nisi filter on my Pentax K-1 full frame camera using a 15-30 mm f/2.8 lens. Because I have no access to the original I cannot remember the shutter speed but the ISO was 100.

There are two sets of these granite features within a few hundred metres of each other. This shot is of Ynys Fawr, the larger stacks. Note that the bright golden yellow of the lichen is not a product of post processing. It really was that colour and luminance.
As far as ‘New Tangled Tango’ is concerned, I still have a little work to do on a chapter about a dinner party. More tomorrow, by which time I should know whether I need to replace the lead or make a warranty claim against the retailer (if Covid hasn’t closed it down) or the manufacturer.
