I've uploaded an image of this cross before. I spotted this spiders web the other day and managed to pop out this morning to capture it in the early morning sun. Thanks for looking and for any comments and/or criticisms.

Grey, green, white. Nice austere palette. The web is good, the bokeh even better!

Marvellous Ann, the web is pin sharp and the bokeh is spot on, it's not easy to get the bokeh this good, You must have been on your face in the grass to get this. I hope the spider didn't sit down beside you?

A bit of a cheat really Dougie - the pavement is below the level of the graveyard, so the grass is at shoulder height, making it a doddle to capture!

I never know about bokeh if it is good or bad!
Beautifully sharp and kinda spooky on a cross.

The light on the de-focussed grass and the bokeh is exceptional, Ann, it transforms a good image into an excellent one. The web in the angle of the cross is well lit against the dark background. Beautifully done.
