No disrespect to Pete, but I prefer this to your EC yesterday, the colours are richer and you've retained the simplicity.
You definitely conkered!

Awful pun... wonderful shot.

Martin

The millstone in my shot yesterday is right at the top of Padley. Park the car just where it comes out (or goes into if you are coming down the hill) of the trees, and walk through the small gate. Walk down towards the birdge over the river, but turn left before you get there, and keep the river on your right. Keep on this path, walk through another gate and the millstone is just a touch further along the path. You can't miss it, as it is in the middle of the path, and as you can see from my shot, the path continues on past it. Hope this helps you.

Martin

Add me to the list. This is the first conker shot I've seen (haven't seen if there is a gallery of excellence place for conkers.) Ours won't be out for a couple of months so I may try something later.

Great and different shot! I hate to point this out, but isn't conkered actually spelled 'conquered'? Aah.. forget about it! It's the shot that matters, not the description.
