Yesterday we went walking in the mountains and found some ice to photograph. The camera was the cheap little Fuji. Don't go anywhere without a camera in your pocket!

Can you see a face hidden in the ice?

Icy tree. It was sprayed by a stream hence so much ice.

Narnia?

'Stream' not 'steam' :D The stream was just a mountain stream but it was splashing over rocks.

Ten miles back down at the village we started our walk from there is a working water mill that grinds corn to flour. My camera does not have a very fast speed so that the water coming out looks like steam in its bluriness!

This is the water mill.

Here is the stream coming from underneath the water mill looking a bit like steam. Note some icicles.

I'm no master of photographing ice in fact this was my first time! Anyone can take these pictures. The trick is to crawl around looking for the best angle for light and contrast. You can get the ice to pick up colours e.g. blue sky, black rock, green moss, brown leaves etc.

I like that look. Does your camera have an "action" setting or something like that? I have one like that. I use it for photographing kids wrestling with their dad and sports. It might work for water if you really want to get rid of that beautiful misty look.

couldn't cope with a SLR...extra lenses etc.....so got Olympus SP 550 US...all in one job..but focuses from under one inch in macro to 500 mm.....the test results i have done are really good...took a photo of an old grave stone about 18 inches by 10 inches with small writing on ..at the very extent of 500mm ...and could read every word...even though i couldnt read it ordinarily from where i was just be so good to use when i go bird watching......the quality of the pics even at full extension is good...got the anti shake mode on the camera as well....again Adrian...wonderful pictures...Have you had any published :?: Les.

Interesting with the tombstone. I have some tombs in Queens NY that can no longer be read. I need the information from them to solve some mysteries of genealogy. I'm wondering if a newer digital camera might help.

I have been able to read tombstone that were unable to be read using the camera and software ... bet it would work for you.

I've had some success taking existing photographs and reading the negatives. But the one tombstone eludes me. What is the software you're using? Does it come with your camera?

I use a program named Ulead .. but my wife uses Photoshop. Ulead is as easy as anything I have ever used. It came with some of my other programs.

I photograph tombstones for my geneology every chance I get. Settles a lot of questions later. I always try to get a little cross lighting when possible, then on the computer I can play with the contrast and brightness and usually get a usable picture. If that doesn't get it I e-mail it to my brother who does forensic photography for a police department. He has all kinds of programs to enhance with but seems to rely on what he can do with photo shop.

Have you tried doing a rubbing? (Is that the right term?) where you mount a piece of paper on the stone then rub charcoal over it. It's a hobby for some.

The picture of the mill reminds me of one of the Universal horror movies of the 30's, like Franenstein Meets the Wolfman, or the original Frankenstein.
