I was fortunate enough to get this image yesterday, although it's not a full frame image :-( I was quite pleased with it.

Taken in landscape orientation I've cropped it to portrait, same height, just some of the sides missing.

Thanks for looking

A bad workman, blah, blah, blah.

Actually Tony I think this shot is incredible. I know a lot of people will be comparing this with the shots from last year by AR, but since yours did not involve a fish tank, so you had no control over the entry and exit points of the KF I think this took more craft.

I'll give you a free place in autumn for a couple of hours with the KF Smile
