Thanks you for your clicks and comments on the first and second pictures in this short series.
Today I move into colour - big time WinkWinkWink
v1 the gate is still in place but half the fence has been removed
v2 the gate is relocated and there is a move from numbers to letters
I have of course used a colour burn to both shots to make the colours sing SmileSmile
Thanks for looking
