What is it with EPZ'ers that they'll vote like loonies for same old same old landscapes and yet ignore superb photography like this? It's a damned shame.

Superb composition Ken - the inclusion of that empty bench rather than going for a close up of the fiddler works a treat.
Gets my User Award too .
