I found a pond with a whole load of weed and one beauty:

 Somehow I doubt they'd appreciate me excavating the lawn here to make room for a load of them.

See the left side of the wide-angle picture? Pink flowers!

Pink geraniums. Beautiful iris.

Lovely pics everyone and well done David, I do love the Ducks at Dusk picture and it deserved to win 

Percy, those pics are beautiful.  I think you can get some really good shots on a camera phone if it's a good one, technology now is so advanced.

Gorgeous Iris and geranium.....my geraniums seem to have stopped flowering and 2 haven't flowered at all??

Sundown last night.

Really enjoyed looking at all the photo's.  Can't look at yours too long David S - heights are not my forte - my hands started sweating   Duck photo however is lovely.

Lovely to see jays Charlie.  Don't get them up here.  Seascapes are always a pleasure to see Dove..  Singy - you have been working very hard by the looks of it.

Percy - your photos with the reflections are so atmospheric - beautiful

Sunset last night was great where you are DavidK

Due to the recent lovely weather & accompanying sunsets, I've done a little experimenting.

I've found that using a camera with automatic settings has its drawbacks as the conditions throw the camera's settings into confusion.

My best results were obtained by underexposing. Set your camera to 'Program' mode (P on the dial) and use 'exposure compensation' facility....this will darken foreground areas.

Oh David, you're spoiling Lily and I with sunset pics, they are our favourites.  Your last two are beautiful.

I'm hoping to get some good ones in Crete when we go 

05/07/2014 at 11:31

Crete? Just don't take your photographs from near any brand new road signs. You'll see why not, sooner or later.

05/07/2014 at 13:42

Thanks, OL...I was a bit chuffed with the last one, as I had used the system described  earlier. I'm also fortunate to be living in an area that lends itself to nice sunsets/sunrises.

Hope you have a nice time in Crete...my daughter & SiL  holiday most years in Greece - they love it!  

PS. This year they went to Skiathos, for about the 10th time.

05/07/2014 at 15:42

We've been to Corfu and Kos, I think I posted a sunset in Kos somewhere on this thread, I love the Greek Islands and can't wait to go to Crete 

05/07/2014 at 17:42

Beautiful David, as OL, says thank you, sunsets are my favourite. 

Went to Greece last year, great holiday.
