Spoil sport! Sad Perhaps you'll sneak a 'camera club' shot in under the radar from time to time to keep us on our toes. In the meantime, more rusty magnificence and a rather strange green hose attached to some old rope! Great stuff!

Back to normal after a glimpse at the range of your photographic talents. This has all the elements that we expect in a "mikbee image" ~ a great combination of rust, texture, detail and colour.

This reminds me of Foggy Dewhurst in an early episode of Last of the Summer Wine, trying to tie perfect knots but however complicated they look they still pull apart immediately they are tugged...

I was never a Boy Scout, only a Cub, so I never got beyond reef knots.
This looks a bit like a woolyknot to me: concocted on the basis of "can't remember what move I made last so I'll do a couple of extra half hitches to be sure." It never worked.
Fantastic detail, Mick. Rather refined grot - must be your Sunday best!

Now there's a man who sticks to his principles, we on EPZ all like your rust and grot. However, it was good to see one of your camera club pics, but even all of those awards couldn't deter you from returning to your inimitable style.
I will KNOT say any MOOR, because you have a CONCRETE formula for success, but maybe you will be persuaded to RING the changes again sometime soon.
