From the trusty old Galaxy S5 still going. From a day to Paignton on a mini break to Torquay.
For those looking at the exif yes I'd left flash on accidentally! I didn't notice this till evening when I took a pic.

EXIF is metadata which is embedded in every digital photograph. It's always there in the original, but sometimes gets discarded when editing to save on data.

Does this one? Is there a way to check it myself?
BTW, the shape was inspired by a discus thrower wound up for a throw.
