Shiver Stabilisation System

I was so cold  and shivering so much when we walked along the river Wear near Durham this afternoon that I could hardly hold the camera still....... which made these pictures a severe test of Panasonic's image stabilisation system. Even dead hogweed umbels are attractive when they're covered in a rime of frost.

I takes more than sub-zero temperatures to stop gorse flowering.


  1. These look wonderful Phil.
    You need a thicker jacket and a pair of silk motorcyclists inner gloves.

  2. Thanks for the tip about the gloves Adrian - will give it a go...

  3. All down to the brain built into the camera Richard - it has a mind of it's own..
