It was just a snapshot on my recently purchased Panasonic TZ 60 compact at the fullest extent of its 30x zoom - so equivalent to around 720mm on 35mm. Camera was set to 'P' and ISO800 but adjusted the EV to -2 to compensate for the bright moon against a dark surround. According to the EXIF data the exposure was 1/1000 sec at f6.7. The Panasonic has a 18-megapixel sensor which allowed me to crop it to around 1/3 of its original image. The camera was hand-held and looking through the double-glazed window. I learned a valuable lesson from a 12 year old beginner in photography a couple of months ago. It was that no matter what problems are suggested by photograpic theory, just press the button to see what you get. It costs nothing to try.

The view from my window after my net curtains fell down is much better of No.2 Mount Street, Chapelfields where George Rice, watchmaker & jeweller, lived and worked.

Had some lovely visitors this morning. First a Great Spotted Woodpecker and then a charm of Goldfinch (up to about 14 of them all together)

Not strictly the view from my window but this is a view of our dining room and through the window to the gardens. And no, the lights are not on all the time. It is just my way of showing life does exist here even if I can't show pics of residents.

It is a Sparrowhawk. It has visited on hunting trips a few times but not for a few months. This photo is from last August.

A Siskin came to visit yesterday. They are similar to a Greenfinch but have a white underbelly streaked with black and a black crown.

Can't compete with that, but this morning we had nine goldfinch at one time, the most we've seen - here's a snatched photo of seven of them! As usual, there was a pair of collared doves sweeping up underneath! Thumbs up
