Tree, moss and lichen

Thanks to everyone who commented on my snowdrop yesterday. Much appreciated

Remember my Canon SX240 that I sent in for repair and then the photo store went bankrupt? Well, I finally got my camera back today!!!!

First it took me almost a month to locate the camera and have it sent to the service center in Oslo. Then they decided this was not a repair that would be covered by warranty and wanted me to pay NOK 2500 (€ 320) to fix it. That was out of the question because the SX240 is an outgoing model and I can buy a new one for € 185 in most electronics stores here.

Anyway, I referred to some discussions on the internet about this problem (a scratch on the lens on cameras that have a mechanical lens cover - like the Sx220, 230, and 240) and also how Canon US have fixed this under warranty. They finally agreed to repair it at no cost to me (they change the whole lens assembly) and it was delivered to me this afternoon!

Naturally I had to go out and test it ;-)
Very clear, very colourful. Glad you got your camera back - it wasn't from Jessops by any chance ;) ?

Lovely shot and what a great tree! You must have very clear air to have such amazing lichen. Nice to hear a good news camera story too!

Fantastic shot Helge. I just love the rich texture and tones of moss and lichen. My eye is really drawn into this photo. Sorry to hear about all of your problems getting your camera repaired. Looks like you are back in business!!!

So glad to hear you got your camera back! Well done for pursuing it, this is a super shot, looks almost fairy-tale-ish

Amazing shot Helge; you have got most of the colours of the rainbow in this. The 'cooler' colours are at the top and left and the 'warmer' reds and greens at the bottom and right. . Maybe this is what gives it the fairy-tale look that Phil mentioned above.
