Firstly, thank you all for your votes and opinions on my Portraits upload yesterday. All comments are very much appreciated as this is the direction I am taking with my portrait photography. I want to offer people something "different" and your favourable reactions tell me I am heading in the right direction. Hopefully, if I don't get a job soon, I can pursue this further - wish me luck!

Anyway, on to today's offering - here is a Rhino captured at the Cotswold Wildlife Park some time ago (yes, I am still trawling the hard drive!) and placed onto an African Plain (courtesy of Photoshop!). Enjoy!

Have a great day and thanks again for all your support!

Carol
