Out again with Mike, Les and John for the second time in two days, but at a completely different area. Lucky enough to combine finding two climbers at the top of the Pinnacle with some superb light. What more can you ask Smile

Now I'm cursing spending so long with that emperor moth caterpillar :Ŧ(

Fabulous backdrop and great capture. My only (minor) nit is that from this angle one can't appreciate the height of the pinnacle. I suspect Messrs. Forrest and Hart will be posting soon too, just to rub it in that I missed the shot :Ŧ(

Well done

John

Well pleased with the reception for this one!!

First of all many thanks Rich, an award from a fellow landscaper is more than enough for me Smile

I agree John, though both Mike and Les were hogging the best areas to show the height, though I only uploaded one showing the Pinnacle from the side a few days ago. The light from my position though was to good to miss!!

Very many thanks folks Smile
