Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for all your great comments, critiques, message and votes following yesterdays upload of Snoops. A further mention going to ColleenA (Colleen), Netta1234 (Netta) and Kuvailija (Jukka) for their User Awards.

Todays upload was captured the other day whilst walking along the sea defences at Grain which is on the Hoo Peninsula in Kent.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me its resting this morning before attending a Bowls Match this afternoon.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Sigma ? do they make lenses ? Grin
Seriously, it's a lovely image, taken in extremely difficult circumstances.
