Gerald, Thanks for commenting on my macro of the highlighter. I am pleased that I was able to offer an image of your liking. You had asked about my equipment.
In this image its a Sony DSC-H1. The sony is a 5.1mp P&S that gets the job done. It has one of the most amazing macro settings I have encountered. The focus ability is such that you can LITERALLY touch the lens (carefully!) to an object and it will provice crisp focus. Its really unbelieveable. Thanks again and Happy Shooting, -brian.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Hey Gerald,

Thanks for the comments on 'Mt.Rainier from Sunrise (HDR)' very much appreciated. Trust me...I have a hard drive full of bad shots. Some so bad that I cringe when I see them. One day I will do a major cleanup and reclaim some hard drive space.

Quite frankly I don't want this anywhere near my groyne! :-) Lovely use of color.
(Above re the rusty groyne)
Smack!... That's what happens to naughty Geralds! lol
It is wonderful colour when the sun shines on it. Unfortunately the land to the sides of the seawall is crumbling away - and we have a scheduled (top grade) monument almost falling into the sea. Not to worry, they are putting up a decorative gate to this old old church site, so that all right isn't it? Cynical? Moi? Kate

Hi Gerald,
Thanks for your comment on "Dry", I do appreciate that,
I actually like the size of the flower, it is like a giant in a small house, this exaggeration adds something to the image I think,
It is nice to know some people might have an other point of view, thanks for that,

Thanks for looking
