Challenge for you David see if you can capture stone skipping on water and see if you can get more than three skips in one photo It’s fun set you camera up on a tripod and use your timer

Good luck

David,  love the autumn shot, if you had not said where, I would have thought somewhere up here in Yorkshire.

David....don't have a clue how you did the fire shot but absolutely love it.....there is something about watching fire!

A couple of shots I have taken today whist in the greenhouse with the wind howling and the rain lashing!  Taken with a Canon Ixus.

I agree, Netherfield,,,,,we do have a lot of those stone built bridges around here and those bridges over the local Trent & Mersey Canal (albeit built of red brick) lend themselves to being photographed too.

I would just say that the one you refer to, has a concealed concrete bunker erected (rather like a bird hide) to oversee the bridge during WW1 (I think) it makes an excellent place to take a photo from.

I have a lovely picture of one of the arched canal bridges but its a Tiff file, while all the later stuff are Jpegs. Do you know if you can convert Tiffs to Jpegs?

More stunning pics from you Nikki....such detail.

I'm running out of adjectives to describe all these photos.

fidgetbones, if you load the tiff version into whatever software you use for viewing / editing you should then be able to "Save as" and choose JPEG format.
