Saw this on the early evening news. Speaking as someone who is keen on photography, the sceptic in me hopes that it hasn't been concocted using computer software such as Photoshop.

If it's real, the odds on catching the moment was probably less than winning the lottery.

Your pictures are always a delight, Rb....I'm sure all are equally welcome here, whatever the skill level of those posting them.

Thanks for that information, Charlie...I knew they had been thought through.

On a photographic note, I would just like to say, that as I had mentioned a little while ago about camera aperture sizes and their relevance to focus, take a look at Charlie's first crocus picture. While the foreground is in focus, the background is blurred. I would say this is deliberate and is achieved by choosing a wide aperture setting...something like f2.8.

For all the flowers to be in focus, probably a *smaller setting such as f16 would be a good choice.

*As if to complicate matters, the larger the f number, the smaller the aperture & vice versa.

Really nice shots, Charlie....especially enlarged.

Yellow crocus especially a favourite of mine.

When or why did the letter 't' become extinct in the English language.....or for that matter what has happened to capital letters? Don't know about anyone else, but it drives me nuts.

Is it the mobile phone to blame?

I've got about 30 seeds on the go in my unheated greenhouse. outside here are 7-9 at the moment, is that warm enough or should put them in my heated propagator? I'm hoping for flowers late August. Thank you in advance.

I presume this is for me and I further presume that '7-9' refers to centigrade temperatures.

In both instances, I would say they will be fine outside and would not be helped in any way by being put in a propagator.

My guess would be that they would flower well before late August.

Could I just ask that if anyone has any queries they think I may be able to help with, would they please raise those queries here on the forum and not in personal messages.
