Buried treasure

Just as a foot note to my Elizabethan coin: I didn't actually dig this coin up from my garden, it was found amongst gravel on a gravel path. I bought this gravel around 1965 and know for sure that it was from a quarry located Nr Mansfield, Notts.

 Sorry, had problems getting pics of both sides of the coin in one post.

To be honest, Brumbull, I probably only took the pic cos it looked so naff.

Like those, Ann....particularly the waterfall (I love snapping waterfalls) it would be great for one of those misty water shots.

Need the camera to be on a tripod (or other solid base) set the camera to 'shutter priority', then choose a shutter speed of say 1/4sec.....your lowest.

Camera needs to be dead still though, or everything will be blurred.

Lovely pics, Lyn.....with me gardening hat on, I would say the fuchsia is 'Swingtime'.

Love the 'sisters' pic especially.

Edit: Sorry, more likely the fuchsia is 'Dark Eyes'.
