I wonder if it's too early to plant seeds there?

Good capture SKIDA I like this!

Thanks Mike. This was our photographic expedition yesterday - the first in ages.

Glad to see you're getting out a wee bit Keith.

Same for the fellas in the sailboat yonder. A brisk January blast about I would say.

Happy New Year - Jethro

Cheers Jethro. It was cold but the light was great.

Skida well I never thought this stack was quite so large until I saw this excellent scaled shot, superb and great work on your gallery. By the way just a small comment with regard to your remark about cheap cameras. The cost of the equipement matters little if the person behind the lens has no technique. I have seen pictures taken on "cheap compacts" and state of the art nikon's that take breath away equaly. Most of my gallery was taken with a Fuji F10 6.3mp and I sell many pictures taken with that camera with people asking how much I paid for my Nikon which I don't own! My other camera is a Fuji S100fs.

Respect and Honour Peter

Hi Peter. Thanks for the kind words. Only professionals who publish really NEED the most expensive cameras and lenses. Like most people, I can only print at a maximum of A4 size and a 3MP camera has enough resolution for that. My Kodak Z812 does have some frustrating limitations but I am generally happy with the results. I shall soon be investing in a medium cost DSLR because I now feel I have done my "apprenticeship" on compact and bridge cameras. The rebel in me wants to avoid Nikon and Canon simply because they control such a high percentage of the market!

I have visited your gallery and will be revisting again soon because I like your shots, but I have a temporary moratorium on leaving comments due to contest spammers possibly following my comment trail.

Best regards, Keith

A case of extreme gardening for Charlie by the looks of it Keith, and not much top soil!

I seem to remember that this time last year (January 2011) there was snow on the ground in Shropshire. Mind you it's supposed to be the coldest county in England. This year we're having lots of rain and gales, and the flood barriers are going up in Shrewsbury today. Might take a look tomorrow.

Cheers, Amelia

I think the gales are everywhere, Amelia. Much fun driving double deckers at the moment.

Cheers Keith
