    A very articulate and very very patient young Zoe. She was able to assist me in understanding not only the three principles of, Aperture, Exposure, and Speed and I.S.O but also how I was able to apply those aspects to the controls on my camera. I moved over from 35m to Digital some years ago and struggled, until Sunday, to understand my lovely camera, let alone struggle through the manual. It was a chilly day, and at Zoe's suggestion , we were sbout to take an exercise in star effect useing the sun : with that the sun disappears behind the biggest darkest cloud of the day, and stayed there. Never mind, it gave us a laugh . Thanks again, good luck to Zoe on her ventures, and thankyou for sending those brautiful pictures down the line. Tom McIver.

After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form.
