And this is the smug self satisfied look when I was about to turn and leave, but I made sure I got one more shot in before I went.

Thanks for your time and comments.

With over 60 clicks - thank the lord that not everybody thinks that all photographs should be produced in the normal 10x8 (A4) format or the 12x16(A3) format. Sometimes photographs really benefit from this long thin cropping - and this is one of them.

Like this photo very much.
