Rust, rivets and shadows

By mrswoolybill
Time for a bit of colour, I think...
Rust, shadows. Two birds with one stone, then. Plus a very dainty little spider, that I didn't actually notice when I was taking the shot.
Thanks for looking,

Very eye-catching thumbnail in the first place Moira - love the composition and the light here is terrific SmileSmile
Great contribution to the theme
A sure sign of Rust in Peace here Moira, lovely detail and great diagonals, dappled by the shadows of the leaves.
On of these moments that stand out from a trip.

Thanks to everyone who has called in here, good morning and Happy Weekend to you!
A number of people are saying that they are having difficulties in keeping up the Saturday Shadows because of the lack of a basic commodity, sunshine. It's a beautiful day here on the Tyne Valley but I have to go and photograph our MP being given a local history book. The original invitation included a reference to a free bar but it was a typo, they corrected it shortly afterwards to a free buffet. Still we are hoping for a good turn-out.
Back later...

A shot Mikbee would be proud of! Wink A great capture, Moira, with great textures - had to look hard to spot the spider though! Smile
Lots of sunshine here in West Yorkshire too! Grin
