Just love this song .....click here to hear

Alasdair the guitar teacher really can play a mean tune.
Me getting in close and being personal.Wink
I think the fingers in the bottom right corner are reflections.

A super dooper thanks to Peter(ddolfelin), Graham(digital_boi) & Jade(jadus) for their precious user awads for my candid image of the beautiful Carmel.
Got home from selling nuts to nutters feeling knackered and it cheered me up 100%.

A very evocative shot combined with the best song ever written by George Harrison. A combination which cannot be beaten and gets my award.
The soft focus and sepia toning is perfectly composed into a shot which I adore
