We should take everyone who takes a class at the School for a stroll round Artillery Hill (the hill behind the School). The views from some of the fortifications are spectacular and there is a lot of good birdwatching as well.
On the Winter Solstice it was clear and cool. So just to give you a hint here's a small slideshow enjoy.
PS - I'm really impressed with the capability of my little Olympus SP-800UZ. All of these shots are straight of the camera. No Photoshop here.
