Photography in manual mode and nice award

Hello, lovelies! How are you? Hope you all are well and have a nice start of the week :o) Here in Moscow a bit cold and we`re expected snow this week. So we`ll need some scarfs, hot tea with large small piece of baking and more lighting during the dark season. But I do love this time. And the most important reason to love this season is... preparations for Christmas! So magic time!!! For me it`s the most joyful part of the year :o) Lovely lightings, yummy dishes, handmade decorations, homemade sweets, festive and bright wrapping, lot of brilliant ideas... and so much job full of joy and fun :o) And what about you? What do you think?
I`m already started my preparations for Christmas. I want to make a great pics of my Christmas tree, of my kids and of my Christmas makes, of course :o) So I start to learn more about photography in manual mode. And the best way to make it - is practise. Here they are some pictures in manual mode again:

Hello, dear friends
In my part of world comes deep yellow Autumn. It`s cold now in Moscow by this time of year and no sun, but still beautiful. Nature is the best picture in any season, isn`t it? Hope your week goes well and autumn brighten your days :o)
This time I`ve tried a new cam setting - all manual. And I found this setting much better than Auto/Middle auto ones. What do you think? Some pictures for you:

Last flowers at my Balcony Garden. Cornflowers are still fresh and bright :o)

Thank you so much for stopping by, for reading and for leaving your kind comments. I love to read your sweet messages :o)
And very warm welcome to my new follower Eugenia at Orvalho e Geada :o)
Wonderful autumn to you all

Buona Italia

Hello, lovelies! Today I would like to share with you a nice place that I`ve visited last time in Italy :o) First of all I must admit that it`s a bit wild and quiet place , so to go there you must get a car :o) It`s a really nice place situated close to Oliena, Sardegna and has the most beautiful landscapes I ever saw. And  delicious homemade food and fantastic vino di casa ))) So here it is Agriturismo Guthiddai (please click to see the web) :

But I know some of you would like to taste delicious Italian food right now, so you can order some typical products at Esca on-line shop. My favorites are: Pesche marmellata, Canestrini albicocca, Savoiardi, Pane Carasau (panificio Sagheddu), Vino Cannonau and more, and more. You just need to taste these yummiest sweets, biscuits, breads and vines )))
Thanks to all of you my lovely friends for visiting me here, for leaving your kind comments that make my day and for following me too :o)
