Damn just looked in as I cruise the Danube and realise I've missed opportunities on this one. My best bet now is a self portrait  ;)

Here's my entry.  I visited a neighbor's house that was badly hit by a recent storm.  This is the view into the house next door.  The calm ocean belies the destructive force just a week or so earlier.

Somewhat more gently exposed to the elements than Ogga's neighbour.

Taken with my now firm favourite Panasonic DMC FZ300, extension tube and Camray 4x close up lens. It's actually extremely versatile, I suspect more so than the pukka Panasonic close up lens as it is possible to use it a varying zoom lengths and therefore different distances - the Panasonic item has a fixed zoom.

I've managed to get a picture off my camera onto my phone using Fuji app and even into comp folder. I have failed to be able to get it out of there and into the entry thread. Can someone do it for me? I'll keep trying in meantime but stumped. Home from Budapest tomorrow after a fantastic river cruise on the Danube.

Paul, what's the image called? I've just had a look in the comp folder and can't see anything that looks like it might be the right thing at first glance. If I can find it I'll happily move it for you.

Later: is it the ruined bar? Just putting that in the entry thread.  :tup:
