There was a nice bit of light on "the dark side" yesterday so I used it to advantage hopefully for this shot in my "KS Studio".
(Model courtesy of Morrisons Supermarket floral counter).

My thanks to all who commented on Drumlanrig Castle........it was interesting to note that V 2 was uniformly popular.
