I was hoping to upload a different subject other than rust from my visit to the beach,
but as there was no ladies volleyball match in progress,
I had to revert to my Plan B !!

A very regimented exercise indeed Mick.

I am really glad you reverted to plan B. as in beach. And I like the complementary green. Amazing how two square bolts create a standard hex offspring
I think I have to emmigrate to Scotland for a dryer climate, here even the rust is too wet at the moment. And I got just the thing for you, but as you know best, one has to wait for the right conditions.

And you've been "featured" Mick. Nice one. I like the touch of the little drifts of sand(this must have been shot from above?)and the wood grain around the hex nut is marvellous.

Can you see the face in this photo, Mick?
Eyes, nose and mouth clearly delineated
Must be a portrait of a member of Big Aggie's volleyball team, however much you try to persuade us that it's just three rusty nuts.
I bet they practice their sport by throwing dockers over the sea wall.
You're a brave man to attempt such a close-up.
Wink
