    Even had to remove the "shower" just in case the double tree hit it. Was a waste of time....good logger he missed.:thumb

    I could use a 4WD "specialist" if just to pull more out, can't see around the bend with 50m of cable and need a thick head if the log jams somewhere, that windshield is pretty close to the forehead.:rofl

    Firewood for years, summer sun in the yard and no more dangerous trees.:clap Big orange thing(s) like fuel....25 Liters so far.:wink:

    Show more.....confectionaries.:dg

    No sir that is how it looks straight off our camera, we don't use any photo enhancing stuff so what you see is what we see.

    So yeap we are committing crimes everyday :rofl

    Looks like the camera is enhancing the saturation behind your back :evil

    Mine is set for a boost in contrast and saturation (Canon calls it "Vivid"). Saves me having to do it later...

    What's that saying about '....where the sun don't shine?' Think we have a pretty good idea about where that may be now.... :evil

    Yes ours is set to the vivid settings to bring out the colours but that is it, no homework done cos we dunno how to to it.

    Our camera is only the Canon SX40HS point and shoot.
