It is also amazing how they choose to settle on a contrasting colour to maximise the photographer's palette. Lovely shot.

Pin sharp as always, Karen - we'll have to make the most of these opportunities.
It will soon be frost and snow!

The only thing I don't like about this picture is that it's much better than mine - by a huge margin!
