This started out as a macro shot of a single piece of barbed wire and developed into this. A tribute to my adopted country of Scotland these 17 years through the great times and the difficult times. Thanks for any comments of clicks Smile

Wow...who would have thought that a small piece of barbed wire would make such a fantastic image.
Wonderful macro work Rodd.
A well thought out idea.
