    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?

    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.
