I have had a few problems this week and have not been making any votes and comments.Sad

Basically, on Wednesday my PC packed up and since I am the Guest Editor this week posed me with a problem. I was able to get hold of a very old and slow laptop (which was gas driven Grin) so I was able to go through the gallery and select the images that I thought deserved an award. It was too slow to do anything else.

Then, on Thursday, my health took a turn for the worst and I woke up with great pains in my chest and back. The doctor has discounted heart problems but I am on pain killers at the mo. So if I only vote and not comment please forgive me.

Really good - and it would be even better I think if you cropped off the highlights on the right edge of the frame.
Sorry to hear about your health problems, take care.

A cracking image John, however I do find the glare on the right hand side somewhat distracting.

I hope that you are feeling better soon mate, and that you get your other problem sorted out in the meanwhile.

Regards Nathan

A bit too close for me! Smile We see enough of these, here, in Australia.

Nicely captured, John!

A great capture, brilliant!

Reminds of a Texas brown snake.

It's scary to have chest pain - I hope you do go and get an ECG though - I had a similar occurrence last summer - they did admit me for an overnight stay and I wore a halter monitor. My cardiologist here in the US thought it might have been an esphophogeal cramp!
