I took a diversion off the M6 while driving north last week to try my luck with the camera in the late afternoon light. I found this small jetty on the River Lune which was just crying out to be photographed!

This is an absolutely tremendous image from front to back and from side to side.The pier leading us in to the picture goes on forever and yet there is so much sharp detail in the trees on the far bank.WONDERFUL.

The misty sunset is quite magical Simon, how do you find such places just driving off the M'way?
I think you might have second sight my friend, but the fact you tried makes it possible.
Another very nice image for the folio, now bursting at the digital seams as well as the film seams.

All the very best
