No words are necessary…
One day I will see it for myself mate, looks amazing.
The fantastic sunsets make things all worth while!
You’re always welcome to visit. Camp in the field when the weather’s suitable or take the luxury option of the air bed in the spare room. You might have to pick your own dinner, though!
Saw your posting on SSish and came for a peek. We had a lovely sunset last night too with added splashes of firework colour – but nothing like yours – WOW!!! Just sharing it makes us feel rich – and you are living it – you are one luck bunch of folk!!
Hi to OH, Big Lad and Wee Un!
Helen and Chris
WOW……so thats where heaven is!
Simply stunning. Great photography, too. Whenever I take photos of sunsets they come out rubbish unless I get busy with photoshop, and then what’s the point?
those are beautiful!!
Can i steal one as a background?
Pretty please in a pie?
I always grant a fairy wish! Photos two and five can be downloaded for use as backgrounds. Click on them to get a larger version (1280×1024 pixels). File size is a few hundred k.
Please don’t crop out the copyright information, but otherwise feel free to share it with that proviso.
It is no wonder I like to come and visit folks as I too believe you live in a lovely, though cold, place.

Hi big bro and clan,
Can I print out 2 and 5 and hang them on my wall, I want to brag about my big bro’s skill. How big could I print these without losing pic quality?
What new digital camera should I get, i’ve got 3.2 mp and 3x digital zoom. Looking at 6mp with 10x optical zoom,and I’m sure shutter speed is important cause my old one takes 5 seconds for one pic!
Is Fuji a good nough brand or do I have to buy adearer Canon or something?
I can see why you live there!
My camera is an older Olympus C4040Zoom (4.1 megapixel, 3x optical zoom – same as having 35-105mm lens on a 35mm film camera). It does a pretty good job if you work within its limitations – the main drawback is that you can’t do really large prints.
I suspect that when you mention shutter speed, you’re either talking about shutter lag (the time between pressing and it taking the picture) or the time it takes the camera to write the photo to memory. And yes, a camera that’s quicker in both areas is better as you can get on with taking more pics.
Buy the best you can afford and I’d suggest going for a compact with six, or better still, seven/eight megapixels (more than seven or eight means more photosites crammed into the same space on the chip, which means you start losing sensitivity, get more photo noise, and make more demands on the optics).
Some of Canon’s compacts have been ordinary in the past, but from what I’ve read and seen the PowerShot SD 800IS is a good bet as it seems to be fairly fast and take good pics straight out of the box in the hands of a fairly unskilled photographer.
If you want to move up a notch, then I’ve seen good reports on two on two other Canons – the PowerShot A640 and PowerShot A710 IS – while the cheaper Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 (five megapixels) does a good job for its price.
Oh, and I never use digital zoom – optical only – and pretty much ignore the digitial claims.
I’ve emailed you a couple of pics for printing out.
Thanks big bro, yeah digital zoom sucks! Yep I meant shutter lag. I’ll look around and see what I can find.
