Hi all, the weather has been awful here for days, lots of rain, heavy mist and lack of good light so I've had a go at re processing this one.
Many thanks to those of you that took time out to view and vote on my previous upload and a special thank you to Colin (colin beely) for the UA and Alan (Alan_Baseley) for the GEA, really appreciated,
Regards,
Geoff.
