Just close your eyes awhile and imagine the gentle clip-clop of the horse's hooves on a sunny summer afternoon in August as the barge is being towed along the tow-path of the Tiverton canal in the beautiful Devon countryside. The silence was magical.

Lovely pictures Ann, people viewing do enlarge they are lovely.

I take it they are home produced David, can I have the middle speckled one to boil for my brekkie ?

Please ace photographers keep them coming, love this thread.

Yes, I forgot to praise Ann's pics too.....they're always worth seeing, as she is surrounded by such nice countryside.

Yes, home produced, still warm & ready to collect. on the pic twice.

Not greedy I picked the smaller egg

Thank you for another lovely Rose pic. So sharp and clear I want to lean forward and smell it.

 I know I've already posted one sunflower close-up. I find them quite beautiful, so I make no apology for posting another.......particularly as it's mid winter.

Wow, it almost looks like one of those illusions that if you stare hard enough the centre rotates.

We may need to be wary.....David's sunflower is hypnotic.

I suppose we all see things from a different, I'm just amazed by the beauty of nature at close quarters, which is why I like macro photography.

 We have lift off.

No one likes swans then?  

Anyway.......just spotted a documentary showing on BBC2 tonight at 9pm that may be of interest to camera buffs, and others, of course.

"From the helicopter crash in London in January, to the Bush fires in Tasmania and the Boston Marathon bombing, non-professionals took some of the most striking pictures of 2013.

This documentary tells the story of 2013 told through images captured by members of the public, exploring how photography has changed in the age of smartphones and social media."

David, I like swans. We have a reservoir near us that has had swans there since I was a child. My Gran used to take us each Saturday and we fed the ducks etc. Whenever the swans came near she "legged it" and told us stories about how they could break a man's leg.

You don't want to hear her version of what rats do

A lovely picture. Please keep the thread going and I'll try my "point and click" at something over the holiday period.

Thanks, KEF....I have to say that I was pleased with the shot inasmuch as it all happens so quickly you don't get much time to dither.....the criteria is (irrespective of other considerations) to get the eye in focus & everything else falls into place. This I was pleased to have achieved.

Crikey.....I'm going on a bit!

 Black swan, Swan river, Perth, Western Australia.

My Gran would have run a mile Fidget. Hard to get my head around a black swan. Thanks for sharing.
