Good luck with it, OL...you must remember to reset it to normal after use, as it doesn't default back after  being altered.

Maybe you'll be wondering in a week's time why all your pics are under or over exposed.

Okay, if it has it will have a button with a square on it, divided diagonally, in one segment there will be  +  &  - in the other.

OH WOW David, they are beautiful 

 

Thanks, Lily...thought you may like them.

I agree with OL, perhaps the first one came nearest to what I was looking for.. I achieved the darker cloud by using the camera's 'exposure compensation' facility....but you prolly didn't want to know that.

It may well be, Inglezinho ...For me, I think uploading them from an external site (something like Photobucket) is the most reliable.

Yes I did indeed, OL.....sorry I didn't comment on it. Normally we only achieve shots like that on mornings following a haw frost, don't we?

Thanks, OL....just thought a bit of fine-weather cloud added a bit of interest.

Growing Sweet Peas

I've copied this for you from the Eagle website:

"This is the white powder that is seen on the plants (see photo at right). This can be kept at bay by spraying the plants with a product called 'Systhane' which is available from most good garden centres. We spray in anticipation from early June, and continue once a month for the rest of the flowering season. Dry conditions and lack of air circulation (plants too close together) can cause this problem. Dry conditions can be sorted by watering the foliage regularly."

.....prolly a little late for this year, but worth remembering for future years.
