Many thanks for the C&C regarding the strange sky. Couldn't get a decent internet connection at home AGAIN so that is probably the one advantage of being @ work Sad

took this on the way to the dairy farm yesterday, now the second version is more of a context . Used a polariser, couldn't resit that special blue you get.

Yes, of course there is a critter. it's me.

Love all three Annette and of course your signature critter had to be included. V3 for me is pure magic as it reminds me so much so summer drives through mainland Europe.

Two images which immediately reminded me of the many times we would visit and drive through the fields upon fields of Sunflowers in the Poitou-Charentes Region of France, the colour was simply amazing especially against the huge blue skies.
