Sort of. I haven't really done anything artistic for aaages*, so I was pretty chuffed with myself when I went on a walk about two weeks ago and took my camera with me.
I had loads of fun despite the cold, which kind of reassured me that my creative block isn't forever...
And now I'm flooding my gallery with the results
I also learned a lesson. Never, ever go out shooting without a tripod in Scotland. If you see sunshine when you step out the door, it's guaranteed to go away by the time you get to your destination.
And grey skies + forest + my camera isn't a good recipe for sharp close-up pictures of tree bark
* Well, I have, a little, but most of it (OK, all of it) was related to my world and my characters, and I'm quite insecure about sharing that stuff with everyone and their pets.
