After a long dry spell with forest, heather and gorse fires we welcome the replenishing freshness from the rain.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

  1. That is some picture! It has been dry in Maine, too. Too much rain isn’t good—I remember my father complaining about rotting beans one June—but too little rain is terrible, too. Glad you got some rain.

    1. I have used the FZ200 for a couple of years now and am very happy with the addition of the macro lens, which I added last month. The camera’s own macro function is also very good and I love the flexibility of switching between the automatic and manual settings. The zoom’s range is only x10, which is not that far. I think the FZ2000 (the one you tried) has a slightly better zoom πŸ™‚
