If you go down to the woods today....

By MrsS    
.... you'll get eaten alive by midges!! Wink

This is somewhere in deepest, darkest Yorkshire - - and obviously Yorskhire midgies do not like Lancashire Lasses!! Sad

Like the light catching the edges of the trees and although it may not appeal to you all, I quite like the fact that the lady appearing at the end of the lane is moving - - - just my preference Smile

Hope you like it too - - apols for not dropping by to see all your wonderful work lately - - Paul keeps dragging me out to take photos!! Wink

Will try to catch up b4 I head off to Rowardennan for the weekend and get all behind again !!!! Tongue

Virtually straight off camera, this one
0.30sec @f18 ISO100 focal length 20mm
.9nd soft grad

Thanks for looking - - may I suggest a LARGE viewing - - off to grab my tea then off to bridge - - catch up ltr - - honest!

Cheers All Smile

PS - - for MrH - - we were only a week late!! Wink

Very mysterious. And it sound like the midges DO like you, perhaps a bit too much! We do not have them here so I'll just have to imagine what they are like.

Thank you sooooo much for your lovely comments and votes everyone - - - thought this might bomb with the lady in there Smile

Roy - - BU@@ER OFF and start taking your OWN pictures instead of playing with everyone else's Wink Wink

Dave - - YOU can ask 'The Man' if that's ok with him, and I'll go get the bandages Tongue

Ian - - it's about a 4 hour drive from where we are so much as I'd love to, think it might be a non-starter on this trip (good excuse to go back, tho') Smile

Cheers All and Thanks Again
