Love the clouds/sky and that slight reflection. I wonder if the wall is a little dark? But as you may have guessed, I'm no landscape photographer, so just ignore me if you think I'm talking rubbish ;)

Tiny works well and the moody lighthouse is great.
Tiny and Snappers choice, all 3 images are very nice (but i'm a sucker for a mono seascape ;) ) Nicely done
Thanks for your comments.

Thanks Dominic.. looking at it again it you are right, it is a little dark. I didn't do too much processing on it so may have another look when I have time.

I really don't know where this week has gone. Suddenly it's Thursday and despite the new camera I have hardly been out.

Frustratingly I am still waiting for the EF adapter so I can use my lenses on the new R6 body. Canon are offering this free with purchase but my application is still "being processed". Equally the L-plate for the R6 isn't available yet... on back order. So the only lens I have is the RF 24-105 STM which I ordered with the camera to keep my going while my 24-105L goes for repair as its been playing up for a while. I have to say for a "cheap" lens the results aren't too bad. I stumbled across a field of sunflowers last weekend - this was taken in low light with quite a stiff breeze - 1/60 and hand held so the IBIS works pretty well. I love the central texture of these flowers.

Nice shot, plenty of texture and detail there. The new R6 looks to be working well.

But at least you have something...
My 5d3 and 24-70L mk2 went in for repair just as lockdown was announced.
Didn't get them back for 3 months.
Fortunately little in the way of togging went on for those 3 months, and I had my Fujis for the stuff that did :)

Anyway... Liking the vibrancy of the yellow. Not going to mention the nasty bug thing ;)

Long time since I visited I have had a look back and love your very cute Lamb, and your night sky, I wish I could see that many stars from my back garden. The I like your floral shot in fact a flower that seems to thrive on neglect is one I could manage. I like your Barley shot the movement of the barley looks like brush strokes. I like your lighthouse and windmill too. The tranquility rose is beautiful and the sunflower vibrant. I must stop by more often

Feeling completely uninspired this week and in limbo with my kit until I get the Canon EF-R adapter which they tell me will be here in the next 42 days!! A brief stop at Snape Maltings in bad light but at least there was some activity on the river..

Frustrating indeed Helen! I hope it all comes good very soon :)
Lovely detailed sunflower nonetheless (y)
Lovely composition with that bee on the flower - especially with its complimenting colours. Hope your adapter arrives soon.
Hi Helen
Nice colours and the bee looks like he is enjoying a good meal.

Good textures, with the added benefit of a bumble Bee.
Thanks for dropping by folks. I am learning the art of patience - sort of ;)

Lovely sailing shot Helen.
Bad you have to wait so long too.

Sailing on a river sounds like a challenging activity - at least to get back to the starting point.

Lovely composition and place to view the sailing from. Hope the delivery estimate was pessimistic...

Texture: I like the textures of the sunflower, you've captured the centre really well. The bee just adds to the pic.
Activity: Looks like a great place to go sailing and I like the composition.
