Solitude in Silhouette ...

By sut68    
One from a little while back now, back on Crosby beach for a lovely & profitable evening with Fran, Ian [shutterspeed] and DTL. Thought some warmth was needed with this cold weather we're having Smile

Hope you have a great evening, whatever/whoever you're doing Wink

Agree with all of the above. Just woken up with one of my daughters beside me cuddled up. The missus has bought me up a cuppa and the dog is waiting patiently for his walk. Grabbed me iPod to browse the galleries and this is the first one I looked at in my faves. What a perfect start to Sunday. Marvellous image Paul.
