Hey all

I have been lurking around the forums looking at all your great photos and comments for some time now. So I thought what the heck let's sign up and join in. Lots of blogs have been asking the people who "lurk" to announce themselves recently so it is my New Years resolution (yes I know it is February!) to make some noise on all my favourite blogs and forums.

I am based in London and have been taking photos since I was a kid. I now shoot exclusively digital with a Canon 300D. Still waiting to upgrade to something sexier but I don't really need it. I love taking pictures of the natural world, animals, plants and macro photography.

Looking forward to posting some pictures and adding come comments.

Here are a couple of macro shots taken the other morning.

All comments and feedback appreciated!

I agree with Toad - #1 is absolutely stunning. You can see so much clarity and details in the droplets - they're almost glowing!

p.s. welcome to Shuttertalk! Big Grin

Hi Ivan, and welcome.

You're absolutely right -- you don't need a better camera than the one you have. Those photos are spectacular. Nicely done, and you're setting a high standard.
