Slate fencing

By joolsb  
Here's one that got away from my day in Snowdonia with Lee and Eifion. It's a close-up of the slate fencing at Cwm Orddin, near Blaenau Ffestiniog. I was particularly interested in the patterns created by the lichen and general weathering - my first DSLR capture that I'm really pleased with. Who knows, I might even join the 21st Century and buy a DSLR of my own.... Smile

Oh and many thanks for the loan of the camera, Lee - even if it did feel weird switching from my LF camera to a DSLR - a bit like turning off a sleepy country lane straight on to the fast lane of a German Autobahn! Smile
