Are those pics taken today Alex? My Hawthorns are really far behind this year, to the extent that, if it hadn't been the same for them all, I'd have thought there was a problem. Even my full-size garden tree is behind although not as far as my bonsai.

At least there are signs of life on them too. Phew! pale

They're all kind of soft focus, probably the fault of the camera phone. It isn't made for this kind of photography -- just quick snapshots of people grinning at the camera.

But the softer focus IS kind of artsy looking. Very Happy

Pretty tree.

suggestions from anyone

Try taking a photo outdoors against a plain back ground.

It looks like you are getting a lot of digital noise.This is caused by bad light in this case, but then i am no expert. Are you using flash ?.

Best bet is a camera. 6mp would be ample and they are cheap now. Smile

I visited Loch ness about 3 years ago on a chilli windy day, never the less a experience I never forget.
I fell in love with scotland and his inhabitants, and they sell a lott of belgian beer in edinburgh.
The Scots are very warm, friendly and interested people.

As soon as I can(££$$€€) I will be visiting the highlands again.

Jim. There's a fella down the street from me who looks just like Bigfoot. Although I don't see a cigarette hanging out the mouth of your guy there. Or a can of Special Brew in his hand.

In fact, if you go to Ibrox on any home game day, I'm sure you'll find half the crowd looks like your guy!

Ok... I admit ,this artist's rendition is not the slightest bit scary. He was no Bosch or Breugel...just a local lad, with a limited ability.One of the most notable reports of Black Shuck is of his appearance at the churches of Bungay and Blythburgh in Suffolk. On 4 August 1577, at Blythburgh, Black Shuck is said to have burst in through the church doors. He ran up the nave, past a large congregation, killing a man and boy and causing the church tower to collapse through the roof. As the dog left, he left scorch marks on the north door which can be seen at the church to this day.

This black dog, or the divel in such a linenesse (God hee knoweth al who worketh all,) running all along down the body of the church with great swiftnesse, and incredible haste, among the people, in a visible fourm and shape, passed between two persons, as they were kneeling uppon their knees, and occupied in prayer as it seemed, wrung the necks of them bothe at one instant clene backward, in somuch that even at a mome[n]t where they kneeled, they stra[n]gely dyed.

All down the church in midst of fire, the hellish monster flew, and, passing onward to the quire, he many people slew.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT BLACK SHUCK AINT SCARY

Or at least not nearly as scary as Justin Hawkins' outfit in this video. His pulsating butt cheeks are quite definitely 'in a visible fourm and shape'
