Olympus OM-D EM-5 Art Filters

A visit to Inverewe Gardens, just outside the village of Poolewe, was called for on one day of the holiday to north west Scotland with it being too wet for much else. Due to the conditions I also decided to try out the Olympus OM-D EM-5 DSLR art filter mode, easily accessed by choosing the art option on the mode dial.

On the way up came the woodland walk to the mountain trail walk we came across this very friendly Juvenile Robin...
