Won`t be long now, Margaret, before the leaves fall off most trees, except oak and evergreens. Which way are we looking?

That's a lovely shot - and the little blob of red sets it off nicely.

Thank you so much everyone for your nice comments. I love photography, it's a fantastic hobby but I'm still very much a learner and the more I learn, the more I realise how little I know!

If the farm machines had been the other way around it would have been port and starboard.

Mick thanks re your comment at 10:52. You`ve lost me re your comment at 18:16.
Have you read my comment I put on your yesterday`s P-a-D at 03:06 this morning?

Comment by: Skeets on 22nd September 2012 at 23:22

Very clever Mick - depends though, if you're making way upstream or downstream.

Comment by: Mick on 22nd September 2012 at 23:31

Yes Ernest I read your coomnets.

Red and Green lights/colours mean Port and Starboard on ships and aircraft.

Comment by: dirty harry on 23rd September 2012 at 00:26

Whats coomnets, Mick? Nets for a new sort of fish?

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 23rd September 2012 at 05:29

OK Mick, I follow, but Skeets has lost me! How can it depend on way you are going?

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 23rd September 2012 at 06:03

Mick, have you come across POSH?

Comment by: Mick on 23rd September 2012 at 09:08

Yes Ernest I know POSH I was at sea for 22 years.

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 23rd September 2012 at 13:40

What was your job at sea, Mick?
You`ve got DH struggling for something to say ! He`s made many a slip when typing.

Comment by: Skeets on 23rd September 2012 at 22:31

Ernest, I'm just being a bit lighthearted. The way the machines are placed now in the pic, would mean you are travelling downstream, if you put 'em the other way around - as Mick said, you would be travelling upstream.
