Today's upload was captured yesterday whilst out and about with my Support Worker. We ventured into Hoo Marina which is located on the Peninsula. The visit proved to be quite successful however the light was terrible. This image has had some work done to it in Lightroom. I wanted to achieve an antique, yesteryear finish, in order to lift the image slightly and tie in with the chosen theme. I hope you like...

Thank you so very much for all you wonderful comments following yesterdays upload. They prove to be an interesting and often and educational read.

I hope that you have a great weekend ahead, for me I will be heading off to Chipstead for a weeks respite whilst Julie is in hospital.

Bye for now Nathan GrinGrinGrin
