  • At least as nice as a 'normal' sunset! Over here, this is usually called 'Alpenglühen' (Alpen = Alps, gluehen = glow). A quick Google picture search for 'Alpenglühen Dolomiten': Last time I have ...

    Thanks, Andrew! My favourite use for a bottle of dry Moselle Riesling is this:  Preparing 'Moules au Riesling'!    :-D Picture source/Copyright: https://chefsimon.com/gourmets/chef-simon/recettes/m ...

    Thanks, Bruce! Yes, the old 520 made it rather easy to come to acceptable results. I always thought that body was a very good compromise, thinking mainly of its weight and size. Used it from 2008 ...

    Thank you, Andrew, sometimes I'm a little slow, but I think now I've got it! :-D I really should come here more often or follow these nice threads more closely! No worries, Andrew, pas de problème! ...

    Aha! :-D But this 'She is from Sweden', hmm, but aren't we talking about a Dave from Ramsbottom, United Kingdom, and not about Charlotte ('meow') from Uppsala/Sweden? Austrian sparrows, too ...

    Good shots, Dave, but why do you call this nice little bird a 'Swedish sparrow'? It's our 'Rotkehlchen', your 'Robin' (Erithacus rubecula) and even the National Bird of the UK! https://en.wikipedia ...
  • I can't offer any better solutions re gloves than what was already posted here, but about that 'excruciating pain': From my early motorcycle days, back in the late sixties, when appropriate ...
  • Sorry, professore, I completely forgot about this thread! Following that link, it seems that your Photo Rag 308 is still availabe. About the coating: Maybe adding the word 'matt' to newer versions ...
  • Replied in Oat
    Well, in Europe (or at least in Germany) it could be. A field of what you guys call 'corn' (corn, sweetcorn, maize, indian corn) would be a 'Maisfeld' over here, but not a 'Kornfeld'. In a German ...
  • The same here, with my older 23" Dell IPS monitor. But so far I actually rotated it exactly once, on the day I bought it. But I probably would if it was about watching lots of pictures taken in ...
  • Alastair, your "Hahnemulle" looks cute! :-D Make it 'Hahnemühle', looks even better! 'Mühle' is the German name for 'mill'; here it is about a Papiermühle, a papermill. And if your keyboard doesn't ...
  • Nice idea trying to combine ambient and flash light, Martin, your beautiful result looks very good, as it doesn't scream 'flash photography'! About translation: Google looks o.k. here, but many ...
  • So far I don't own a gimbal head but I agree: Buying a cheap one is just wasted money! The same story when it comes to tripods. All I can add here is some humor: The German word for 'bird' is ...
  • Replied in Strange thread
    For this warning, I gave your post a thumbs-up. When it was 4 or 5 thumbs-up, the OP asked to get his entire thread deleted. But what actually got deleted was this post by the OP asking for deletion. ...
  • The OP seems to own this previous model, the older 3.5-4.5 version, as he mentions the metal mount (while the slower, newer version came with a plastic mount). Now and then the aperture got stuck ...
  • Sorry, but this is not correct. To use IBIS with an old manual lens, you don't dial in the ' apparent ' focal lengths ('100 mm' in your example) but what it says on the lens , in your case '50 mm'. ...
  • I also thought it might be about 'Babushka' (old woman, grandmother), that's why I looked it up. A 'Babushka' definition I didn't know about was that a certain part of a Babushka's outfit might ...
  • From the Urban Dictionary: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=baushka Liewenberger
  • Tom, you probably don't know about the European wildcat, Felis sylvestris. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_wildcat Living in the middle of a forest, about 12 years ago, I had an nice mix of ...
