    Nice contrast with the Spring Vs Winter. A quick flip and crop produces this (hope you don't object to me using your photo).

    This will be a good time of year to see Bluebells, and maybe a chance of a good photo opportunity?


    Can anyone tell me when poppies come into bloom, and where I may see them?

    Those are really excellent pictures Spooky. Im not sure which is my favourite though, its probably the one with the poppies, rapeseed, daisies and grass in it. Thanks for sharing:) x

    I kid you not Spooky (and Sandra) I find the results from these Panasonic DMC machines amazingly good, and difficult to improve on even with 'modern' interchangeable lens cameras costing 10-times as much...

    I need to play some more with the Fuji X-E2, but I am NOT convinced at date :shrug:

    Offers considered :uhm:

    Oh, and the DMC (TZ10 and/or TZ40) just slips into the pocket/glovebox... :o.k: HELLO?

    The photo looks very good quality John, :icon_thumright:

    I’m in the market for a new compact camera, think I will give the Canon IXUS a look.
