 I know I've posted this before, but I do so again to show what can be done with a decent zoom lens.

A shot of the moon is just that, but I  like this because of how the clouds complimented the moon.

For what it's worth, I have 3 cameras. A Nikon Coolpix L27 small pocket camera, a Fujifilm HS50EXR Bridge camera and  Pentax K50 DSLR with several lenses.

David, I watched that unboxing clip. Did you read some of the comments left !!!! Shocking.

No I didn't, but have now......nothing detrimental about the camera though.

Some cracking pics been posted here over the last few days. I was particularly impressed with Dary's rusty sea defences.....a cracker!

Good luck with your new camera, Hostafan. 

Double digging!

What does it achieve? Do you get plants or yield double the size? Does it keep the undergardener out of mischief?

Double-digging improves the aeration of the soil, facilitates root penetration, and is especially recommended for crops such as carrots that root deeply, helping to prevent forking. It’s beneficial for new garden beds with long-term plantings, such as vegetables, perennials, cane fruits, and shrubs.

Double-digging also improves soil drainage by breaking up compaction and removing hardpan on soil.

 I would say that everything depends on using the correct spade. Mine above were made by Elwell and are 60 years old and still going strong.

The spade needs to be sharp, well balanced & the correct length for the user. Quite honestly, I would be whacked if I attempted to double dig with some of the monstrosities on the market today.

You may notice my own spade is worn on the front right side...after many years of use, this wear happens depending on whether you are right or left handed.  I'm right handed, had I have been left handed, the wear would have been on the opposite side.

Half time....Chelsea 1 (og) Dynamo Kiev 0. 

Fairygirl, I think you're being rather modest, good pictures (and yours are) still need to be composed.

B&W, most cameras can be set to shoot in monochrome.

Magic, Hostafan  Sorry your the delivery of your camera is on hold. Meantime, perhaps you may look up some 'unboxing' clips of that model on YouTube.

 Your pictures are gorgeous, Fairygirl......please don't change them to b&w.
