perhaps for this bird the weather became a bit too much of a challenge and decided to
get onshore; this image is a rather hefty crop from a scan of a slide and in suppressing
the excessive grain the image acquired a bit of a painting feel which I do rather
like. Talking about challenge: yesterday watched the docudrama "Touching the Void",
a very impressive story and portrayed equally impressive.
thanks for looking & being here
