Nice lead in to the background and superb tones in the brickwork. The light on the curved parts of the stone work give the image a three dimensional look.

Watcha David,
excellent shot, and clever bit of playing on the frames throughout the pic.
Brilliant shot, well done. The sky through the arch looks incredible, great architecture.

Wonderful shot and I love the composition, especially the sunlit trees through the archway.

I would also recommend Buildwas - used to go there a lot when I lived in Shropshire. A hidden gem of a place and well worth a visit. In fact, the whole of Shropshire is one big treasure trove of great places to photograph .. The Long Mynd, Wenlock Edge, Ironbridge Gorge, endless list !

Thanks for you comments Karen. You are right about Shropshire and it's a pity that we have lost you from Shropshire. Smile
