Over the moon with the response to my work of late, it is very much appreciated!

This is another one from Tavy Cleave on Dartmoor, looking down stream. I've gone for mood and drama as opposed to a realistic record of what I saw - hope I've achieved it!

Go on, go on, go on, go LARGE! Smile

I do have to agree with you there, does look a lot heavier on uploading for some reason, not quite as bad in the large version though.

9/10 is good enough for me Wink
