A few pictures from my holiday in Northumberland (September 2004)

All the pictures were taken with a Panasonic DMC-FZ2 digital camera.
Although only 2 Million pixels it has a 12x zoom lens and an "image stabiliser".
Exposure and (35mm equivalent) zoom settings provided for those who are interested,
but note that some have been adjusted (for exposure only, not zoom) in software
