After a foray into the Natural world, back to what I love doing thats my mono's.

I do however have a colour version which I also like which may see an airing in the future.

This was from (what I thought) was an un-productive trip to Grosmont whey back when with Les Forrester (LesF) and Mike Hart (MikeH).

All comments welcome

Why the Tittle ? you may ask, well the guy has more than a passing resemblance to a certain lead singer of a famous Irish rock band.

Ah but can he sing?

Classy shot Nick, and it is of course the reflections in the specs that make this work oh so well.
