    Seem to be trapped in the house this summer with this awful weather. Just bought a Sigma 17-70 lens to go with my new DSLR, Samsung GX-10. These are the only 2 shots I've managed so far, nothing special I'm afraid !!

    Just curious, is "bloody" considered profanity in UK? The asterisks made me wonder....I always assumed it was similar to saying the "dog-gone weather."

    Nice pics, by the way!

    I'm 42 and when I was growing up in the '70's bloody was considered swearing, as was **** and crap. Nowadays, they are words that are commonly used on radio and television and won't raise an eyebrow anymore. As such, it's about the same as 'dog-gone' or 'damn' weather. I'd expect f*** to gain similar status in the next couple of decades and then we'll only be left with one truly offensive swear word.

    Oh yeah, nice views BTW. It's a good job you like hill walking so that you can go back again when the light is better.

    That's interesting...according to the photo forum server sh** is still considered swearing because if you type it in full it gets turned into asterisks automatically. Crap is fine though!!

    Maybe we could start a new game in this awful weather. See who can type the most offensive word without getting it turned into asterisks?
