    Not the most technically exciting photo but it fits the brief - is it a picture of a tree on a hill in front of a building or an inverted picture of the reflection of a tree on the bank of a pond?

    It's the latter.

    Paradoxically speaking, one camera is at Nikon having focussing issues looked at, and unfortunately the other has just broken and won't come out of Flash Mode.

    However, I've just found a paradox that will fit the bill - taken a long while ago on a P&S camera - a rose in full bloom in winter.

    Cheers :)

    I'll give it until this evening and then I'm announcing a winner as I believe it's down to me as last week's second place.

    You're right MacRy, but there are so few photos this week and yours is one of them. Maybe we could ask someone else?
