Hi Everyone

Firstly, I would like to say how chuffed I was with all your wonderful comments, messages and votes following yesterdays upload.

Secondly, this is an image which I have kept hidden away for sometime know. Simply because I feel that it is a very personal image, one which means a lot to me. It was captured whilst I was staying at Chipstead Lakes on respite. A week which I always look forward too, however this particular week was not so good for me, both physically and psychologically. I won't bore you with the details. However I did manage to capture a few snaps in between my ups and downs.

I hope that vyou all have a great day ahead, for me I'll be taking things a little easy following a rather turbulent night.

Regards as always

Nathan GrinGrinGrin

I know the feeling, hanging on to a very personal image. I also reckon that I can often recognise the very personal shots, because they're not trying to prove anything. No big wet rocks or dramatic lead-in. All about the actual feel of the moment.
9.51pm, a summer's night drawing on. The boats tucked up for the night, the geese having their supper. Time to unwind. Nice one.
