I did have a tripod with me, but this one is hand held. This time Kodak's Image Stabilisation worked quite well.

I appreciate your comment as I really wasn't sure about this one.

If it is the post on the forum I think it is, then I may have said I will upgrade eventually. I am in no hurry especially as no-one seems to agree on a standard format. Full frame, four thirds, micro four thirds? Knowing my luck I would end up with a "betamax" camera!

AWWW, Keith, I hope the seeds did not blow into your garden! these plants are an absolute pest when not in great drifts in the countryside, or beside a river-even there it is driving out the natural species, therefore there is little sustanance for thr wee beetles and other wee beasties that live on and around the natural flora.

Nontheless, the Rose-bay willow herb is a very colourful lady in our summertime show!

Your photograph shows just how many seeds can be spread by just one of these plants.

I love the isolation you have placed it in, making it appear far removed from it's neighbours (I bet they would wish the very same, if they could!!)

Very well done, Marra

When we left your house and drove to Big Waters, Seaton Burn, we were hard pushed to find decent landscapes and so we concentrated on close-ups. Of the few landscapes I took, three were ruined because I hadn't spotted a great big lump of litter in the foreground (too busy setting up the tripod!). Doh!

I like this picture too, and I LOVE your titles. You have a very lyrical view of our world. I enjoy browsing your gallery Keith.

It's actually a line from a song on King Crimson's first album. I just thought it quite apt.

Greetings from a cold and windy Northumberland.
