Del cannot access this forum yet as she still doesn't have wi-fi, but asked me to thank Penfold for the picture he sent her.
In her own words, she wrote:
"Hey Gill, Do you realise that.using this.phone is.like chiseling words in a stone slab.evwrytome (see that's how every word comes out and I have to correct it three times lol). Anyway. Facebook works.when it wants to and other sites very rarely. I have a.favour to ask. Penfold sent me a photo of a lady sitting under a tree looking out over the dales or meadows or what you call.them. its gorgeous. I have been trying to access his Facebook since Christmas to thaNk him and everytime I have tried the phone goes CRAZY and I have to shut it down. every day I have tried and finally tonight I got a thank you message to him but it doesn't look like he ever is on Facebook. Can you PLEASE PLEASE message him in the forum to tell him I left a message in Facebook . Thank you thank you Xxxxxxxxxxxxx"

From Del's description, I think the photo is titled 'A Golden Hour on Cissbury Ring (Print 18)-001.jpg ', but I cannot access a link to print it here.

Anyways, Penfold, Del says: Image Image Image

Thank you for passing that on Batty, I was starting to worry that she might not have received her Hogswatch/House-warming/Christmas prezzie as it had become a real pain to post (size issues and I had to have it remounted). I never use Facebook so I hadn't even thought to check there. :D

A late follow up on a couple posts in the 2013 thread...

:clap:


Absolutely. Thanks for posting your pictures everyone, I've really enjoyed following the thread.

Most photo-editing programs allow you to rotate an image through any angle. Here's the de-wonky version, rotated about 2/3rds of a degree.

I really like that image, as the low sun catching the Spinnaker tower and white buildings makes it look like a city of the future. Unfortunately, it's actually Portsmouth. (Hmm, still not sure if it's quite straight...)

Here's nephew at Christmas:

...and I call this A Bad Day in Toy-Town

Santa was good to me this year, I got a 250mm telephoto lens. I've started sorting out my latest images and getting them uploaded to Flickr, but it's going to take a while....

I know what you mean Ghost. Every time we get a snowfall here that leaves a few inches on the ground, I try to get out to the nearby golf course to take some pictures. Unfortunately, I never get further than the end of the garden path before turning back to get into the warm and dry. :lol:

Very nice pics, btw Susanne, it can be very hard to photograph snow without overexposing the picture. :D

Have fun with the new lens Knight. A Bad day in Toytown looks like it was fun. :D

There is indeed, although it predates these guys by at least 400 years.
