Hi, folks

Welcome to ‘Camera Corner’.

I know we already have our ‘Garden Gallery 2013’ thread and it’s great for sharing pictures of our gardens.

However, I (and others) feel there is room for a thread where we may share other stuff, so with this in mind I’m starting this one that will hopefully be more photography orientated.

Perhaps we could post pics of gardens & places we have visited, wildlife, macro (close-ups), sunrises & sunsets, patterns, landscapes……the list is endless.

I’ll start things off with this pic I took earlier in the year of my local bluebell wood:

If Land slugs were this pretty , i wouldn't mind them as much.

Is that a sea slug, fidgetbones? He/she is very handsome.

David.....I like that very much.  

Fidget,,isn't nature amazing?

Thanks, folks......perhaps I should have said that the bluebell wood located at Barton-under-Needwood, not far from Burton-on-Trent.

Sea slugs. aka Nudibranches, due to gills being naked and waving around in the water instead of  being internal. They do a similar job to land slugs, clearing up detritus, and grazing on soft algae. They are hermaphrodite, so he/she.

Thanks David, photography is a bit of a hobby for me.

 

That's good news.

It's been a good summer for butterflies:

Excellent thread David!  I dabbled with photographing fireworks in 2009 and the results can be quite surreal:

 If that one posts properly, I'll post a few more, otherwise I'll edit and retry.

I'm no expert by any means, ann. In fact I've recently joined a camera and find that I know nothing really.

Modern digital cameras are quite complicated until you get the hang of them, although you can always play safe by using them in auto. Learning how to use aperture & shutter priorities and macro & super-macro settings broadens your scope.

An example is that if you are taking a picture of a waterfall say, if you use ‘auto’ the water will look just as you see it. But if you choose ‘shutter speed priority’ and choose a very slow shutter speed, the water will look milky white…… I will see if I can find an example.

great idea david. Great photos already. I must have a look in my files.

24/10/2013 at 22:02

This is an example pic for Ann:

I'll perhaps elaborate another time.

What a great thread - look forward to many more photos

24/10/2013 at 22:05

Thanks for the positive comments...I think it has the potential to bring pleasure to people, even if they don't participate
