One misty morning I took this photo of beehives next to a dam. The bee / honey farmers move their beehives around to places where there are lots of flowers - this was taken next to a canola land. I put a fairly dark sepia tone on it - just for fun Smile
Thanx to all for your kind V&C's and especially to Eric [ Gypsyman ] for his valued UA.
Have a super Tuesday !
