Reach for the Top!!

By MrsS    
Hi everyone, hope you have had a good weekend Smile

Just got back from my Dad's Christmas bash in deepest, darkess Wiltshire.

Nice to see all the family again (won't get down that way at Christmas) and a good chance for a chinwag with my Dad, who is 87 and NEVER wrong! (wonder who he passed those genes on to???) Wink

Anyway, one from Gummer's How when Paul got his "baby" back from the Camera Hospital Smile

Felt like I'd been climbing for ever, turned a corner - - - - - - and realised there was still some fair way to go!

Hope you like, enjoy your evening - - don't forget Top Gear isn't on until 9pm tonight Smile

Thanks for calling in, don't forgetI hate it when folks don't "talk" to me! Wink

Lovely colours in that foreground stuff, and in the sky and the rest of the pic too, but I like that foreground heather and stuff.
