First to barmymarny and again to Conrad for the AWARDS.
Next to all the people who offered congratulations on the E.C. (it won't happen again).
Then to THE EDITOR for the E.C....previously I had aspired to a H.C. and would have been over the moon for that so this is astounding.

Extra thanks to Sandrak for inspiring me to visit the place and all on epz for advice,critisism,and support since I have been on here.......AND I suppose to RobmacD for putting up with me the last few years.
Cheers, Keith.

This is a superb shot. It reminds me of a still from a really well filmed advert for breakfast cereal, as the sun rises (start of the day/breakfast). I'm not mad honest. Version 1 my favourite.
