Another day in Godzone
« on: December 09, 2019, 11:59:47 PM »
Just looking back through my old photos suitable for my profile and came across this from May last year.  Shows up the old station nicely.  Shame it just died  :-(

Nice picture. But did you know that taking a picture of a rainbow is quite a feat.

rainbows are very common and easy to photograph in New Zealand

Ah, but how often do they appear directly behind your weather station?

Just out of interest (I have looked but can't find an answer) how do you embed an image in a page rather than just have a thumbnail of an attached file?

I know to use the "[image][/img]" command but I presume I need to upload the picture file somewhere on the forum server.  I don't have an active Photobucket type host to use.

Thanks

Use the "Attachments and other options" controls below the new post window. Then "Choose File" button to select file to upload. Then "(Insert Attached)" link next to filename box to insert picture at cursor position in text box. Use "(more attachments)" link to add more pictures to same post.

I only just got around to watching the video. I know why I managed to get all the colours.  My camera is a Lumix too.  I never realised or thought about it before, but really interesting.  Now out of interest I'm scouring all my stored photo's from my Galaxy Note 8 to see if it as as good as the Lumix. :lol: :roll:
