Didn't leave the house yesterday. Just couldn't be bothered.. though I scaled the forbidding heights of Billinge Hill the day before and am going out for a stroll among the snow showers in a bit..                                                                                                                                                                 Meanwhile..here are a few recent pics taken in the snowy gloom of New Year'sEve.                          Winter Sun                                                                                                                                                      https://photos.app.goo.gl/ypLbyXwSrD5AzrZd9                                                                                Road to nowhere:                                                                                                                                                   https://photos.app.goo.gl/GXdCowgm7qwtm2bA9                                                                       Moonrise:                                                                                                                                   https://photos.app.goo.gl/WWhNzKiC8JJZaavC9

Serious issues with the return key and others at the moment.. but the lnks above do work for me.  I'd love to claim credit for this next shot..but sadly it wasn't one of mine and all credit goes to local lad Ian Bonnell, whose sister I used to work with.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/AeRY9Y2hsNArfrDw5

How is it you get such good shots? Use of telephoto/zoom lens.

Whenever I try, I just get a bright burned out image that not even worth enlarging. B.

Last shot above not mine Beek.

I also have the issue with the Moon 'burning out' shots and I stil haven't figured it.  But I have a few more to post later where it sort of worked.

For Beekay.. above and this one both taken using my Canon 450D with a Sigma 70-300 lens at full reach.   I then cropped in as much as I could without losing to much resolution..and tweaked the exposure etc. a bit.                                                                                                                                             50793403011_a9e3050f9a_c.jpgIMG_1288[1] by

Neither of the above are much good IMHO.  To get the moon looking nice, you either need it referenced against something..like a couple above.. or you need to be using a VERY  long lens.. or a camera attached to a telescope.

No worries BK. It doesn't take long for me to teach you all I know about taking pics because I know bugger all. :biggrin:                                                                                                                                               Here's a shot of a crescent moon taken on 16th Dec. I was queuing to get into the pharmacy to pick up my prescription so I was surrounded by buildings. I just happened to have my Panasonic Lumix TZ200 with me and spotted the crescent moon.  I've cropped it to my fave square format and tweaked it very slightly in the Flickr Editor but that's all.                                                                         50795573577_fc76c954d1_c.jpgP1001269 by

This photo was taken by my neighbour from her balcony across the road. The house on the left is our next door neighbour. The snow is still around but it's quickly thawing and very wet.

RR Have you got your head in the sand?

 

Well I've been out there & not missed a day since the virus arrived, no stay at home & feet up for us foot soldiers, no masks, no washing or toilet facility's out on the street, I probably get a wider view of the situation, weeks before Christmas Eve Mrs Red was taking & returning the elderly to & from the day centers & then the government tell us not to mix with your families over Christmas? Yeah right, do one.

I suspect you've been fortunate and I hope it continues.

Meanwhile..  Whilst moving assorted containers about in the garden.. I noticed that I have some Tulips and some Anemone De Caen beginning to appear.. despite the cold.  Oddly, the containers with daffs in are showing nothing.. and the biggest container.. which has about 100 new Tulip bulbs also isn't showing anything yet.

Odd.

Col, perhaps the ‘old’ tulip and anemone bulbs have somehow worked their way up nearer to the surface?
