Opening Time!

By rhiw_com  
Took this the same morning as "Hell's Fire" about 15 minutes before dawn. The best pre-dawn light I have seen this year up to now. The ruin is an old tavern, the black patch on the chimney is very dark ivy. I'd love to go back in time, as this must have been a fantastic watering hole, right on the shore.

F22, 14sec, Lens @17 mm, ISO 100, ND grad filter.

Please view...LARGE...if you can.

Many thanks for all your comments and clicks on my last upload.

Regards Tony

pity the top of the building is in shadow and there is a bit of a halo where the sky meets the land, i'm just being picky though, all in all a good effort, love the deep colours and textures in this shot, also the water with the long exposure looks good.
