Back to basics...

My plan today was to tackle smoke trails, once Adam and Roy were out at cricket practice. I read up on the tutorial, assembled everything as the guy said and, well........ I've put a photo for posterity (and amusing story) in my alternative album. Suffice to say, it was a dis-ars-ter dahling!

A trusty bunch of gerberas came to the rescue, I just loved their pretty pink colour!

LOL! I tried to capture smoke a while ago, and it was a pathetic attempt on my part. Love what you did with these daisies - beautiful angle!

Smoke still in the too difficult box for me!! Lovely Gerbera shot Jackie :)

I tried the smoke shot too. Dahhling, mine was a disaster too ;o) Gerberas are gorgeous but always flop far too quickly for my liking. You've captured this beautifully xx

Love the colour of this!
I found smoke really hard too. I could only get the 50mm to focus on it - the other lenses were useless!

Wonderful color - I'm so yearning for flowers and bees and cheerfulness. I call this a total success
I haven't tried smoke yet - but I'm going to. I'll have to track down your other shot.
