Same here! Thank goodness for gravity, without it I'd never have worked it out.
Light snow here, just hoping there's no more - we're only just recovering from the last lot.

Bit of heavy gear here Mick, thats a serious bit of cable. But it makes a good picture, the cable's on the diagonal, and there's enough rust to make it one of yours. Nice one.

A bit of a composition special, this one, Mick, very neatly done too. You could form a rusty X by flipping, inverting, re-flipping and adding all four together in PS, though I'm sure you would have no problems finding a rusty X somewhere, doing the job in-camera and saving yourself the trouble of all that software time.
I have a feeling it might make a decent black & white as it is, but I'd better not tell you Smile

Bill

Great textures in the rust today Mick! but where's your snow gone?
I have a feeling you are going to be on the receiving end of it all from tomorrow...so better get out for the pint and a few to take home... Like all the shadows on this too as well

Hi mate, trying to fathom out what they are trying to prevent being nicked. Seems just a bit of old cable ~ Isn't nothing sacred up there, seems everything has to be chained up with old rusty locks and chains?
Nice!

A wonderful set of diagonals in this composition Mick - crazy angle, but it works. Ever since I started looking at your images, I see rust everywhere, and I see beauty in it - especially if it is someone elsess rust Wink

It had me twisting & turning to find the angle too. I reckon it needs turning 90 degrees clockwise. The shadows would be less confusing then.

Mind you, would the shot have got as much attention if you hadn't made us all think? Smile
