David you are so kind I have nothing on my computer that comes close to your blue bell you win every time.


I will have to look at some sea scapes I have for my next installment

Bluebell from last spring! Roll on longer daylight (coming shortly - I'm assured of this).

*I'm enjoying the "pooch pics" enormously - especially as I used to breed springers - but ceased when I changed jobs and moved to 'town' after living in a very rural 'tied' cottage (where I taught geography and geology at a field centre).


hi archiepem, no its Rainsborough in the Kentmere valley very near were i live, not sure if the spellings correct 

David i was made very welcome along with another newby i just didnt think the pictures shown were as good as i expected, i have been spoiled with all the good ones on here


i will go again David its perhaps a bit unfair to judge after just one week.

i am trying to understand the relationship between shutter speed, ios and aperture but i need to play a bit more i think

 I met this friendly little fellow whilst out walking in Austria a few autumns ago. Our paths crossed, so to speak, and then we each went calmly on our separate ways. Ahh!! [I hope KEF and others approve of this subject].

Again....loads of fantastic shots!!  David that a snake or a slow worm?

I got very excited when i saw the below on the road in Braithwaite Village, Cumbria until somebody informed me it was a slow worm!!

Hi Nikki J, Most definitely a slow worm! (The hand in the upper pic belongs to my OH, Sandra). Female slow worms can grow up to about 60-65 cms - when 'gravid' with young developing inside, they exhibit a pronounced 'bulge' about 1/3 along their length (generally in late spring summer in GB but it can still be seen in early autumn in more mountainous/ hilly regions, like the Alps or Lake District.
