Standing outside Pitlochry hostel one evening with "my thumb in my bum and my mind in neutral" as a pilot I know would describe my absent-minded state at that moment, I was startled by the sudden appearance of Kaybee with his camera! Wow, I thought, Roy's outside the hostel! Was there a fire? I wondered. Wink

Then, with lots of muttering about "bluidy lens ain't long enuff" he raised his camera and took something similar to this shot, which of course I hadn't even noticed...

Well, seeing as he hadn't used a tripod there were no holes to give the game away, so I thought I'd have a go too, Smile

This is the result and, for the heck of it, I've also added the full frame and one cropped at 100%, for comparison of course, not to pi** Roy off about his lens...

Wink

CHeers, Goggz

I had to read the first line of your photo description a couple of times then Goggz before it sunk in where you were going with it Smile. Anyway I love the drama of the sky and the little tree dwarfed against it. Looks like something out of a film. Excellent capture. Sam x

Thanks Fraser!

Sam, I do talk drivel a lot of the time chook, but as far as the picture goes don't blame me, blame Kaybee. If it wasn't for him it would never have been taken Smile

Jeez, it wasn't me who "took" these though, it was Roy. I just copied him. Still, if you like 'em that's half the battle. Thanks anyway.

I'm well Tony, apart from not being abroad, but that's a long story.
