Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Okay folks, I'll start a new thread in the next couple of weeks and ask Daniel to close this one.

Liam, I understand your enthusiasm and rest assured, you won't be let down.

LP, I'm flattered kind words and to see those lovely sweep peas.  I would say that they have a really good length of stem for this time of year.

DD, Those self-sown SPs will be fine and will survive the winter. Having said that, they may not look exactly the same as their parents.

 The moon is back to looking her old self tonight.

I agree with those who found it rather unspectacular last night.

For anyone interested in the techie stuff: The above was taken with a Fuji Finepix HS50 EXR camera, with 42x zoom 24-1000mm lens.

Well done, Marion...it does illustrate clearly how the moon was dominating your skyline.

Just woke up after a disturbed night. Rather disappointed with my efforts......when the moon eventually coloured-up (muddy, rather than 'blood' I thought ) despite my best efforts I wasn't able to get a worthwhile shot.

Still waiting for it to come up over the hill.

Does anybody know when the eclipse is going to happen? I'll probably be awake, I usually am.

 

I've received an email from my camera club, re it being an photographic opportunity.....seemingly the eclipse (here in Staffordshire) will be around 3am.

Tripod, camera & telephoto lens poised  If I wake up.
