This was my other winning image in the Plants & fungi section of the Muirshiel Park Competition.
You have seen this before with a texture added (I'll upload a copy) but we couldn't use any manipulation
in the competition apart from levels etc., so this is the original.
Well little did I ever expect to upload an image of damaged tyres to Ephotozine,
but I'm glad you enjoyed my little story.
Harrison of course think he's the Winner now and guess what he wants for his birthday this month -
Hot Wheels! (the latest thing I'm lead to believe) so thank you all for your comments on the story!
Hope you're all OK wherever you are.

were in for taking this? Excellent work for a natural take. Loved V2 also….WinkWinkWink
