thought it was about time that i uploaded another shot
i've had a break from photography for a little while to give my eye's a well deserved rest they are on the mend now but it's taken longer than i hoped not been out with the camera much at all but here is one from thursday hope you like it
many thanks for all the cc for a palette of colour to annette for her user award and all the pm's i've had they are all so very very much appreciated Wink

Glad to hear you feel on the mend, Andy......take care.
And what a fab sunset to come back with, very well composed as always and with the light reflecting so nicely in the f/g watercourse.
I am wondering if you had tue camera on tripod with a time lapse and that the figure is yourself?

Welcome back Andy and I hope your eyes are completely better. I love this thoughtful image; it conveys so much with that figure looking out in that wonderful light and the stream winding its way into the distance. Super tones and all round excellent image.
