    Like the one of the Wallace Monument. Is that the refinery where all the strike trouble was a few months ago?

    What kind of a camera have you? Mine has to autofocus so I'm not able to take a shot like that ( at least I don't think so. I must actually read the manual )

    I've got a Canon EOS 1100D Dermo. If yours is a digital SLR and you can change the lenses, look on the side of your lens and it will have a wee switch which can be set to AF (auto focus) or MF (Manual focus). You have to be in manual focus for shots like that. Even more complicated, you have to pre focus before you take the shot, so I had Trish hold a ruler upright in the bowl of water which I focused on first, (camera is on tripod), then when I dropped the strawberry I knew it would be in focus. You also need a fast shutter speed (as Reg kindly pointed out), something between 1/200 and 1/400 of a second. I also had a torch angled on a cushion pointing at the bowl to give more light as well. Feckin' complicated taking a picture of a strawberry!  Out and about... 3025408739  Oh, and I had a black jacket on a coathanger behind the bowl so there would be no background clutter!

    I took my first practice night shot out the window last night...
    Out and about... Img_1112

    ...again this is on manual settings with the shutter open for 8 seconds.
