A rather nondescript image which was captured on yet another wet and miserable day. However I did like the both the reflection and the every increasing circles in the sodden tarmac surface hence its capture.

A very big thank you for all your great and interesting comments following yesterdays upload. I try to vary my uploads as much as possible in order not only to fulfil my need to capture something different but also to share with you just a tint snapshot of my evert increasing catalogue of photographs.


Not to clever this morning following a bad night, so I shall be taking things extremely easy today.

I hope as always that you all have a great day, and take everything which comes your way with a positive and open mind where possible.

Regards Nathan Grin
