Spike

By NDODS    
Not my usual type of image, however I did think it was worthy of an upload.

Back to yesterday "what can I say?". I was simply bowled over with the amount of comments, kinds, words "how did you do thats?", votes and UA's following yesterdays upload. At this point I would like to say a special mention to Fentigher, Carts-123 (Jeff), Ade Osman, Gypsyman (Eric), TrevBattWCC (Trevor), alsoppdigitalart (John) and last but by no means least Brian65(Brian) for presenting me with they're extremely welcomed and cherished UA'sSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, I am looking forward to seeing what you all have to offer, and providing a comment where deemed necessary.

Regards Nathan

Lovely. Do like how the main spike seems to appear out of the dreamy background. Like the trace of cobweb too. Very well done.

First of all Nathan let me congratulate you on all of the very justified rewards you recieved. It was indeed an outstanding image.

Today's is also an outstanding image but for different reasons and photographic skills. It's the man behind the camera not the equipment he uses.
