It has been raining here all day but stopped a few minutes ago, so hey presto, a shot of one of our late roses covered with raindrops Smile.

EPZ has been running at snails pace for me, has anyone else had the same problem or is it my computer, it nearly drove me mad ysterday Sad.

I hope the sun is shining on you and if the computer doesn't play up I will catch up with you as best I can.

Thanks for your votes and comments,
Annette x

It has been hard to get find a dry flower this summer for sure: the only advantage of all the rain is that it adds another dimension to this sort of image, and this one has been beautifully captured, Annette.
Looks as if the rose is encrusted in jewels.
And set against the black b/g, there is nothing to distract the eye and the bloom displays to perfection.
One of the best rose shots I have seen recently.

Beautifully adorned with those raindrops, it makes a beautiful Rose image. Sunshine here for once - 2nd day running. Certainly can't last!

Re speed of site, seems more or less ok for me though not perhaps quite as fast as usual if I leave a comment!!

A jewelled beauty indeed Annette! A stunning image, well captured.
I don't have any trouble with EPZ running slow........just the whole flippin' internet!!! Sad

Really lovely image, the water droplets really add to it.


At times, EPZ seems to hang and do nothing so I have to go out of it and back in again at times.

This is lovely, for all the reasons mentioned above. Am I not one lazy so-and-so?

I believe that the EPZ IT team has been working on the server this morning, so I'm surprised the site hasn't been off-line altogether.. My anti-virus is currently scanning the entire computer, so everything has been running at a snail's pace and PS wouldn't respond at all. So it isn't just me who's the lazybones Smile

Good shot Annette,but thanks for the reminder of all the rain that has been falling here !!
Bill is correct about them working on the site this morning,so perhaps it will not be so slow for you now.
