No,my other half took the photo in Cocos (keeling) island , indian Ocean. we were 25metre down. The best aquarium in the world.  The cleaner shrimps will clean, finger nails, pedicure bare feet, and if you open your mouth and take the regulator out, they will clean teeth.

Very nice, Brumbull......I agree, the flower (dahlia?) is a masterpiece of nature's design.

Fabulous picture of the flower - is it British?

Were you in Lanzarote in the micro ligh?.  My husband took lots of arial picutres when he was hang gliding there.

Just popped in to say that a few weeks ago I bought a Canon 'Selphy CP900' photo printer and can say that I'm delighted with it......the quality of prints are up to laboratory standard.

Canon claim that the prints will not fade & will last for a hundred years. It will print using WiFi from your mobile phone, also straight from your memory card or camera, or from your PC.

The only downside I've encountered is that it will only use original ink (one cartridge) and print size is restricted to postcard, max and Canon paper.

Lots of reviews on YouTube.

That's very pretty, ginagibbs......everything that should be is in focus and no distraction from the background.

Whoops!  I thought it was a new dahlia I hadn't seen before.

i have lots of pictures on my computer but some wont load because i think they are too big so what is the optimum size for pictures to be downloaded to this forum please

26/10/2013 at 16:35

Awww.....that's a gorgeous take, Ann, but then you have a privliged location.

Can't help with the actual size of files, mabe you could find out by trial & error - mine seem upload from my PC or Photobucket without any problem.

Good luck, I look forward to seeing more of lovely pics.

Btw, just ordered a new camera.

I am going to South Africa soon to go on a safari and see some of the gardens. I need to replace my very old not so good camera and would like to buy a good compact. I would welcome advice as to what is best.

Good to know, my present camera is a Fujifilm S4500 30x zoom....the one I have ordered this afternoon is a Fujifilm  HS50EXR CMOS 42x zoom.

Little-ann, I did some experimentation with posting photos to the forum and found that it's the file size which makes the most difference.  If you have a PC, download and install the free "Irfanview" program and load your photos into it.  Use File, Save As and choose Save as type JPG.  You'll see a JPEG/GIF save options screen - move the slider to 75 then click Save on the main window.  The applies just the right amount of file compression to allow full size photos to be posted without noticeably affecting viewing quality.  The original (as saved by the camera) for the photo below was about 1500kb and wouldn't post in a way that could be clicked and the full size seen.  After running it through Irfanview, it is about 300kB.  Edit: I forgot that I also resized to 1920x1080!

Crikey, punkdoc.....I've been pondering this for ages and finally decided today.

I would look at my post above + Canon PowerShot SX50 HS + Sony Cyber-Shot HX300.....all were on my short list.
