Good Day to you all at ePz

Firstly thank you for all your great comments and votes following by uploads yesterday. A special thank you going to Williamsloan (Billy) for his User Award.

I would also like to thank Moira and John for their suggested modifications. Its always great to hear from those who can help one develop my photography, "We are never to old to learn"

Todays image was captured yesterday afternoon whilst wandering through the gardens of the hospital. I was immediately attracted by the light and the red tip of the leaf seemed to glow like a fag end in a backstreet during the blitz.

I hope that you all have a great day.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin
