I shut everything up as tight as possible, but my garden tends to be protected. I'm more worried about a tree falling on it.

The little ones on now may as well be knocked off. New ones will grow in the axils for next year, only the early lot will ripen in this country. Even in my greenhouse, the little ones at this time will not overwinter.

Firework photos are notoriously difficult.

When we used to take in films at the place i worked, around bonfire nights, we used to gets loads of really disappointing pictures. At least with digital cameras, you can see its no good, and not waste money printing them.

 I think the learning curve can be so much quicker with digital. it is cheap to experiment with bracketing, etc.

With underwater macro shots, the in thing is a ring flash, which bathes a small area with an even light, instead of the usual strobe to one side ( or two strobes)

Stacey, my messaging system is playing up. It seems I can receive messages but not reply or send new ones.  Also I click on certain posters and it says they have no posts. This forum is  up the creek at the moment in more ways than one.

Staacey had a plum and apple mincemeat I made earlier on, then  plum and apple chutney, then lots of spples just blancjed and frozen. I use sweet apples for crumbles, without adding any extra sugar.
