  • I wondered how you were going in your area... glad to hear it's not too bad for you. The forecasters reckon we won't get anything like as much this time. BTW did you get your camera back? Rick
  • Last week's rain hasn't really gone away and is reforming for the weekend. There's not much left flowering in the garden, but the remaining rosemary flowers have been very popular with a variety ...
  • Replied in brown hare
    That's a great photo, sharp facial fur echoed in the lichens. Albrecht Durer would have been proud of this one. My only other comment is the little wildflower stalk behind it - it made me wonder if ...
  • ... was excellent, Roel. Starkly poignant. Rick
  • Lovely, photo and flower both. Very glad you couldn't resist the urge to post one more! I've never seen an iris of that shade. I was also a little intrigued by the two insects beneath one petal - ...
  • Thanks, Roel, for confirming the share is OK. No FB "likes" required - in fact you shouldn't be able to see my FB page, if privacy levels are what I think they are. I only use it to keep in ...
  • Some beautiful images, Roel; thanks for posting. I've taken the liberty of sharing your Zenfolio link on FB as it will interest some members of my extended family. Rick
  • Rick
  • Thanks Whynot. Technically it was called an "east coast low" because it formed in cooler waters than a cyclone/hurricane/typhoon but the result was pretty similar. Whatever its label, it cleared up ...
  • Nothing to excuse, Steve, you're always courteous on this thread. But I can say it, it wasn't a good image except insofar as it gave a different perspective on last week's post. At the risk of ...
  • What a wonderful selection of orchids! My first choice was #1, the Pleione with its whiskery fringe, but your phychomorphys made a great picture and were also interesting little flowers in shape. ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    I did wonder about the depth of field even at f/8. Considerate of the butterfly to stay long enough for a second image. I found it a pleasing result with those gentle yellow and green tones. I ...
  • Agreed the later violet isn't great, and normally I wouldn't have posted it. However it was all I had this week and, being taken from above, it gives a different perspective to the stacked image ...
  • Masterfully done, especially #3 and #4. This series makes me wonder why I ever bother to get anything sharp! Rick
  • Curious, isn't it - RichZ adds colour and they look great, and you bleed it off and they look great too. Almost makes you think Mother Nature picked the wrong mid-range, but we know that's not ...
  • Another rich Rich rose collection... 1 and 3 were my favorites, and the iris too. Rick
  • Thanks, Dicky. We had less than a foot of rain in Sydney, so not that heavy by FNQ standards, for example, but the winds were strong enough to match a category 1 cyclone. It was the areas 100-200 ...
  • ... but this is a more general view of a little violet ( viola hederacea ) similar to the one I posted a stacked image of last week. With high winds accompanying 255 mm (10") of rain in 3 days, ...
  • E-M1 switches itself to MF if it doesn't have a lens on, if the lens on is 4/3 or m4/3 and is switched to manual (as you can do on e.g. the sigma 150), or if it's not an AF lens (e.g. Samyangs.) Th ...
  • Glad you liked it, Steve - I was afraid it might be lowering the tone of what has been a very high class thread this week. However today's been a "stuck indoors" kind of day - we've had over 2" of ...
