The Witches Pool

By MrsS    
Hi All! Yes I know it's not a SLT but Mr Sutton has pinched the shot today (makes up for all the times I got one over on him!) so today's upload will have to wait a while until you've all forgotten how good his is! Wink

So, this is one from W.A.S.P.'s trip out and about between Christmas and New Year (was it really only a week ago?)

Decided to try out my new waterproof boots to see just how waterproof they were, so for once I had to forego walking on water and actually stand in the stream. The boots did well and my ickle tootsies stayed both dry and toasty warm.

Anyway - - I stood there and just thought how magical this pool looked, hence the title. As I was taking this, a couple of chaps quizzed me about what I was doing and I pointed them towards EPZ, so hopefully there is at least one potential new member (cheques or paypal, Pete, I don't mind which!) Wink

Thanks for looking, hope you like it, off to find you an SLT for tomorrow! Smile

Thanks Jouko, MrS, John, Hilary & Carol Smile

Bit of a balancing act, Hilary, and a tad of a climb Wink

Carol, you must be a mind reader - - just added the last touches to a Balti for tea - - shall I set an extra place? Grin

Cheers All

I fancy this as a square format crop from the bottom........losing the jumble of rocks at the top and having the water falling into the shot rather that fighting through all the stones

See what Roy means, but I do like the fact that you can see where the water has come from before getting to this pool.
