Wherever I hang my hat...
But where's Moondancer (I think that was the name)?
Hopefully where she always is: bobbing up and down at the northern end of Lake Windermere. I'll be back up north in a fortnight and will check she's OK. :)

Co-operation...

The wooden staves are laid out on the shingle, to help get the heavy wooden boats (known as luggers) in and out of the water... as seafaring people have done for thousands of years...

Great pic,but with a little aperture adjustment,the depth of field could have been even less,making a more blurred background. When I do this kind of photography,I always use full manual settings and a tripod.
Taken with a 60mm macro lens at f/2.8 (maximum aperture), so unfortunately not much chance of better blurring ;)

Just a quick snap from the back garden from me today...Brand new camera has arrived and frustratingly can't get out to shoot on it!!

Awesome camera absolutely in love...Cant decide whether to use the visoflex or not...(talk about first world problems huh!!)

Feels like a big upgrade from my M-E....not sure it is on paper....but it just feels like all the little improvements add up...favourites menu is great...all manual controls are there and just 3 buttons on the back which do what they say on the tin....quick iPhone pic below :)

This is beautiful. That color is awesome. I have a pinky orange dahlia in my garden this year (a lot more red than this pumpkin color here) that I cannot get a good photo of because the color is too saturated and the camera can't handle it. I love this one!
[doublepost=1498998892][/doublepost]My kids are 9 & 11 and swim year round. We are now in the heart of summer swim, and we spend the bulk of our summer days at the pool. This is just a phone photo (and I can't quite get the perspective right on this with all the lines), but the pool gets the best morning and evening light and I am sometimes dazzled by it.
