I've tried for years to get a shot like this without success and after seeing yours, I might as well give up. Absolutely beautiful. The hands of time have a hundred tales to tell. Particularly like the age spots. Reminded me how much I miss my mum. Oh dear I'm getting all sentimental - better log out!
