Thanks for sharing your 'canal bridge' pic with us, fidgetbones. I love canal bridges and we have some really nice ones locally....in fact, Tesco have just opened a new store in our area and I understand that of their plans was to demolish a much loved bridge, but local opinion prevailed and they modified their plans to retain it.

Good for local opinion David to much of our Heritage is diminishing to I can’t be bothered to preserve it.

Quite true, James.

Anyone with orchids have a good photo source:

Love the Orchid David.

A trip to my father-in-laws allotment this morning gave me a good photo opportunity!

I do like crows FB - when they're not near my allotment!  I thought the "winter is coming" was quite apt - obviously I'm alone on that

I was looking for a quote for the 'silly quotes' thread when I came across this one and thought it suited 'camera corner' quite nicely....

*It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional.*

Where are you Brumbull?

Thanks little-Ann.  He is good.....gives me lots of advice but, like any man with an allotment, I am sure he keeps a lot of secrets as well

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?

Hi Fidgetbones, Yes you can. Open the images as a JPEGin Photoshop, then click 'save as' and scroll down to the format you wish to save as. This creates a separate version on your desktop.

Took a stroll along the canal this afternoon and took a couple of pics of those bridges I spoke about:

I have David - it's a lovely thread, thankyou - I hope to contribute more once I've had time to get to know my new camera a lot better

Keeping up with David's theme of canals.  Has anyone ever visited the Pontcysyllte aqueduct at LLangollen?  Very impressive but not somewhere to walk across if you suffer from vertigo!!
