Don't think I have ever seen the mass broken up into so many discrete 'bits' as here but it makes a wonderful patterning.

A beautiful image. Wonderfully abstract pattern, courtesy in this case of a Peregrine Smile. Well captured.

I will never tire of these shots. I have never seen anything like but on TV and I'm truly impressed with your captures.
