  1. The Fly Agaric is grand, perfectly lit and it's always good to see a rainbow.

    1. That's the first time I used the flash on my new camera.

    2. I always light close ups with flash. It worked fine this time but if you get reflections buy a packet of cigarette papers and try using one as a diffuser.

    3. Great tip Adiran - as long as it doesn't tempt me to start rolling reefers!

  3. Ha-ha! I see what you mean but it was a lone rambler from Bury in Lancashire.

  4. I can imagine you shouting at the lone rambler, pot of gold in mind, 'Left another ten paces, a bit more, that's it! Dig there!

    1. The fellow was from Lanacashire Hippo. If I had dug up a crock of gold there's no way I would have shared it with him. He's have discovered that shovels have other, more sinister, uses!

    2. You know how to confuse a Lancastrian? Lean two shovels up against a wall and tell him to take his pick.

    3. Ha! Ha! I thought that was an Irish joke!

    1. Hey Carol, it fair took my breath away when I turned the corner and saw that wonderful sight before me. Very pleased my new camera was able to capture it quite faithfully.

    2. YP, just curious, does your new camera record the GPS coordinates in the metadata of each photo?

    3. I must admit that I am technically dumb - an imbecile really - but I don't believe my new camera has that facility - though a guy I know - he comes in our local pub - does have that facility on his camera.

    1. I hereby christen that formation Jenny's Rock and so it shall be marked on OS maps for all time!

  7. What a superb set of images. I could feast on them all evening! I am sitting here listening to Chopin's Grand Polinaise Brilliante, and thinking what a PERFECT accompaniment it is to them. Try it an see!
