Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you so very much for all your wonderful comments, messages and votes following my upload yesterday.

Todays image although not everyones favourite subject rather appealed to me simply because of the colour. The iridescent greens agains the rusting metal makes for an eye catching combination.

After the storms last night I had very little sleep so today will be a rather relaxing one.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead

Regards as always NathanGrin

Terrific colours here, Nathan, great focussing, too, giving a really good bokeh.
I think you have more rain on the way (no more storms, tho').
Just hope it all clears up, for my drive North on Sunday & Monday...
