    My advice to everyone is to obey official advice and to STAY AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA, where so much disinformation is being disseminated. Of course, this advice would also be good in normal times, but especially now.

    I have created an area here that will allow members to post and format topics before anybody else can see them. Once you make your post you may want to change the order of images or formatting of text, etc. This place will let you do that as only you and myself will be able to see the topic. Once you are happy with your post you can notify me and I will move it into the appropriate area. Or, if you are a subscriber you should be able to do this yourself (I have not tested this yet, but please let me know if it doesn't work).

    Many thanks to @WildClyde, @GB111, @Akira for your donations and @Mexecutioner for subscribing to Fotozones. FZ is now in a great position looking forward, thanks to the incredible generosity of this community. I have enough funding for several months hosting now, as well as the impending license renewals. I am also going to be adding a few new enhancements to the Zones area in the days ahead (there are some cool admin features I can now pay the Invision developer community for). This will allow me to move all the existing brand forums into Zones, essentially making them mini-forums in their own right. What's nice about this is that if you have no interest in a certain brand or format, you won't see those posts on your feed. It will go a long way towards negating any animosity between different brand users. I'm sure the Nikon family would like to stick to their own stuff without having to read about my Micro Four Thirds adventures, etc. It is my duty to make sure that everything here works the way it should and to encourage you all to make good use of this website to share your work, ideas and opinions on the things you are doing in photography. I am hopeful that the next few weeks will see a resurgence in participation. If you aren't getting email notices when following threads, please check your notifications settings as there are many different options there that will keep you abreast of posts being made on Fotozones. You can even get notified when members you follow make new posts. Basically, we have everything that Facebook has, only without the commercial surveillance. Speaking of Facebook, I have a non-personal account there called Foto Zones which I will use to post links of great new material that I find on here, so if you still use that social network you can friend and follow the Foto Zones account (it's not a page). Now I have to go out and do some last minute provisioning before our country goes on a 21 day lock down.

    Thank you for that Dallas. Unfortunatelly I'll only be able to test it in 3 weeks. I'll be working offshore during this period and the internet there does not allow sharing pics.

    I heard of a Durham University student (ranked 133rd in the world) telling his parents he was quite safe from Covid 19 because - 'It will only come to Durham if it can't get into Oxford or Cambridge !' The Medical correspondent of Private Eye has reported that pharmacies are running out of Paracetamol first, then Viagra, and recommends 'The Wheelbarrow' as the Approved Position in a Pandemic .. 🙃 cheers, Maurice

    This is a picture I treasure a lot. I'm at the top of Kala Patthar, where we can have the best view of Mount Everest and its surroundings. When we arrived at Gorak Shep, a village (?) at the base of Kala Patthar, totally exhausted from the all day hike, the guide invited us to climb it to see Mount Everest before sunset. We should rest at the lodge to head for base camp next day, but we decided to do the climb, in fact a heavy trek. I do not regret doing that, even because during the descent I had a diarrhea attack. The view was glorious. Mount Everest is the black pyramid next to the praying flags. Nuptse seems higher because of the perspective. Also the Base Camp and Khumbu Icefall can be seen at the middle left.

    No, this is the Ama Dablam, one of the most beautiful mountains of the Himalayas. The village on its foot is Dingboche. You can see the Everest in #3 of the first set and on the post Everest and Me.

    A few weeks back I 'enjoyed' a field trip with the RPS to the Open University campus in Milton Keynes. I say enjoy because storm Dennis was raging at the time and I did get very wet and battered. It was nevertheless very interesting though not as productive as hoped. What did catch my eye was this extraordinary tree carving by a guy called Tom Harvey who uses a combination of chain saw and chisels. This one is called 'Reflections on the Moon'. I only had a 24-90mm lens so could not get the close up shot I wanted but fortunately it is a very sharp lens and enabled the crop and edit that I had envisaged. Here is the final image. (click on image to see it at its best in the lightbox.)

    Dallas: I was happy to send something to help, but please do not stop by to visit! We are trying to get all of you "outsiders" to stay home. 😊 My best wishes to all of us. And to all, please be safe. Many locals (especially the teens and young adults) think this is all a joke. Yeh, I know, this is off topic

    Akira, the situation in Germany is not as dramatic as it is in e.g. Italy or Spain ... Folks are basically complying to the rules (social distancing etc.) which helps a lot. There are always idiots but that's normal. I guess given the current degree of globalization we all have to take care and contribute as good as we can no matter where we are based. Personally I am doing well, it does however feel spooky ... almost nobody in the streets, shops closed etc. Take care! Chris

    This morning I shut off the news, mounted my bicycle to the back of my car and headed down to the beachfront. All bathing has been banned (who knew viruses could swim?) but people are still allowed to go out and enjoy the sunshine as we draw towards the end of a very long and hot summer. I rode for about 9km along the promenade, snapping some photos with my iPhone as I went. Here's a few from the ride. Walter White has been through some wars and has eaten a nice chunk of money, but he has a new engine and most recently a new ABS pump, which cost almost as much as the engine. It's a wonderful car and I hope to keep it for a long time. The city between the dolos. This is as far as I could ride going south. I'm on the north pier of the harbour, facing north(ish). I started my ride just behind the dolos on the right. The inspiration for the title of this thread. On another pier (which I have posted photos of here many times before) sits a restaurant patron having a glass of white wine at 10:48am. Port o' Durban, my childhood home. I lived on the 5th and 6th floors of this apartment building from the age of 9 until I left home aged 22. It's definitely the most unusual and modern building design along the beachfront. We moved in a couple of years after it had been completed around 1977. I have so many memories of this building and while it has seen plenty of changes since I lived there, I bet I could still walk around it blindfolded and know exactly where I was. It faces north so in the winter time it gets pretty warm because of the floor to ceiling windows. Addington Hospital, place where I was born and currently the holding point for local people infected with CV19. I was reading this morning that about 8 or 9 of the group of people who brought the virus here from Italy and who are being treated there are taking legal action against the department of health to release them because they are asymptomatic. The health minister is denying them their release until they have been tested again, which apparently can't be done because they don't have test kits. This is a government hospital and not a place where I would want to be cooped up. It may look ok from the outside, but inside it is a mess and in a state of disrepair. Lifts don't always work and water supply is dodgy. The Bike & Bean. This is one of a few places along the promenade where you can rent a bicycle and have a cup of coffee. Normally it's a lot busier. All images taken with and edited on a 3 year old iPhone 7P. The best camera is the one you have with you.

    Well done, Dallas. I've been to Cape Town twice, but you showed me some areas I haven't seen. And we didn't make it to the top of Table Mountain on either visit because of bad weather.

    Very interesting photos, Dallas. Good to see a bit of your habitat, so different from ours.

    I have done this myself. There are two viewing modes that are NOT full screen. One shows the icon bar (colored dots you reference), one doesn't to maximize screen real estate, both still showing the normal macOS menu bar.

    It sounds like you entered the full screen view by accidentally clicking the green ball. You can return to normal view by pressing the ESC key. I use full screen and swipe between desktops with the 4 finger gesture on my trackpads.

    This is where I spent the night there. Even with a good sleeping bag and a thin mattress, this was probably the worst night of my life. Minus 10C inside the tent for a guy from the tropics was too much.
This leaderboard is set to Johannesburg/GMT+02:00
