Dressed in red the dusk, on red and the tension in Europe. But when you have nothing, you have nothing to lose!

I send you my love and many greetings.

Thank you dear eva-emma. My thoughts are with you and Greece itself on this day when you have to vote again. A vote which may well influence the fate of the rest of Europe, and maybe even the rest of the western world! Love and best wishes - Jim

Jim I cannot get this kind of clarity of sunsets with digital at all. Film is just so much better for sunsets (and I imagine sunrises, but how would I know?).

This is gorgeous mate - Jethro

I know what you mean Jethro. One of the first annoying things I noticed about digital was the gradated unnatural halo around the sun or some other bright objects. Otherwise, I find the clarity and ease of use with digital outweighs the odd drawback. I know what you mean about sunrises too. I usually see them by default after being up all night, like now! Best wishes - Jim

I never seem to be able to get the clear crisp focus around the sun Jim like you have here. Try as I might.

Sorry I kept you up all night (always happy to accept the blame) - J

No way you kept me up all night Jethro, just going through one of my cycles of being up all night! Here's an example of what I called the "halo" effect around the sun with a digital photo, makes the sun look a bit like a pale fried egg!
