  • Some nIce photos, here are several of my ice photos of recent origin: Unfortunately I didn't have a good camera (Pentax) with me when out for the evening's  promenade. Photo taken with a toy ...
  • Well, maybe not... Bob
  • Replied in Gulkhand
    Thanks for the advice and the kind offer of a sample...I think sending a sample here would confuse the customs officers, then they might taste it and then just send the empty container on its way. ...
  • Normally this house plant, commonly called Christmas Cactus, is covered in red flowers during the Christmas season. This year a solitary bud appeared on Christmas eve and finally opened a week ago: ...
  • Replied in Gulkhand
    Thank you MRP, had never heard of Gulkhand before, had to look it up online. I have approximately 60 cultivated rose bushes, some of which would probabably make good Gulkhand, unfortunately there ...
  • Happy New Year all! Wonderful red rose MRP, nicely done. Not a lot blooming around here at the moment, down to -11°F (-24°F) this morning, so I climbed into the time machine to see what I could ...
  • The backup battery is a CR2016, just use a coin to open the round cover located on the bottom plate of the camera. My problem was with the main battery compartment contacts (the area that holds ...
  • Replied in istDS2
    I'd try using a pencil eraser, one on the end of a pencil (remember those things?), to polish the battery compartment/door contacts. Bob
  • I hope it does the trick, the contact include those inside the camera and the ones on the battery compartment door. I had wondered about the backup battery, but it was still okay, clock was off by ...
  • I tried powering up one of my *istD bodies last week, it had been unused for six years and it would not start up, tried different batteries without success, I then used some 90% alcohol on a swab ...
  • Here's a flower taken yesterday in the deep North of Minnesota (in the north central USA) Actually frost on a window pane (one can dream), don't think you'll find this flower in the warmer climates ...
  • Nice photo Pablo, I like having the human interest on the right side looking to her right. The eye follows hers with the perspective of the building leading the viewer's eye on to the distant ...
  • MRP, always enjoy your presentation of new flowers not found in this colder climate. We may get the season's first snow tonight, but a few flowers have been holding on in spite of the nighttime ...
  • Thanks for doing this again. I've sent an email as requested. Bob MNBob
  • The last day of the season for this garden was yesterday, the bench will be accessible for the next two weekends and then will be covered with leaves until sometime in December when it will be ...
  • Here's a contribution taken several days ago at a public garden with the 16-45mm shot wide open at 45mm Bob
  • Replied in Dean Did Well!
    Who is Pentax? is that your middle name? Can't fool us, we know it was you, Dean, who actually did well. Pentax 25%, Dean 125% Well deserved congratulations and recognition, thanks for sharing. Bob
  • Thanks for the kind words, great to know you are checking out "Your" flowers that we all are posting. Hope you are doing well. Here's another photo from my Minnehaha Creek walk: Warm Regards, Bob
  • Just finished looking at all of the very nice photos in this thread, obviously Spring is in the air in the Northern Hemisphere (and finally here in Minnesota). A week ago I was watching the snow ...
