Hi All,

Just a quick post - the first for a couple of months - just to wish all on Epz a Happy Christmas. I may not have been very active, but I've been occasionally lurking - trying to wean myself from my Epz addiction and give time to other projects (their still mounting up in an ever increasing pile of to-do's). Anyway this is a shot taken a few weeks back at Chester Cathedral. I thought the poppie wreath was ripe for some subtle colour popping.

I know its no longer November, but we should not limit our remembrance of those who die and are injured in the futility of war to just one time of year - did you know that at present there are some 41 wars and conflicts been fought world wide?

Happy Christmas - and best wishes for those of non Christian faiths.

Guessing this is HDR, nice to see it used properly/appropriately for a change, great shot.
