Precisely.
I am very taken by the light catching strands of the surrounding wire, and of course the shadows.
Now in limbo between one excess and the next. But tomorrow we'll be sober Blush

I did find Xmas very excessive Malc.
I got a big shock when I saw the price of a litre of dark rum nowadays !!
And I am ready for the New Year.
I shall visit my neighbour and drink his dark rum !!

I go along with all the above. And I like the way the light is blazing through from behind,
making the shadows radiate outward... that really emphasizes the idea of Power. Clever.

Yes, cleverly taken Malc! I like the way the light is hitting the fence and creating the different light patterns.
