Smock Silhouetted ...

By sut68      
The smock wind pump at Herringfleet on the Somerleyton Estate, Suffolk is silhouetted against the evening sky, just after sunset. Taken a little later on from my earlier post, after the sun had set and a little more pink & red was being reflected in the sky.

Spent the late afternoon and evening in the great company of Fran, Rich, Ian Flindt and Clive Burrow [cheers guys].

Nearly weekend folks Smile Thanks for popping in and also for your tremendous support on my latest set of shots this week, it's been great.

Paul

He's replacing the full set of filters he has, all the others are cover in scratches, salt crystals and a small part of a very camp bloke, apparently Wink
