Must not be as good as this and as long, Bill. Wonderful compo and DOF, a thought provoking image.

He's got the right idea, you too. I won't be sticking my nose out the door either... bugger the shopping.

The old gent in the bg really helps to make this shot Bill, well done for not waiting 'til He had past.
And I didn't say, past away Wink

We Scots are not a hibernating nation Bill.
We are too tight fisted,we would keep waking up in case we missed something !!
Stiil,like everything else,there is two sides to the coin.
When we are hibernating we cannot be spending money !!
Why is life so complicated sometimes ?

Hibernating... Me too Bill, more strong winds and driving rain here in Kent today!
I like your choice of DoF also. I probably would of waited for the gent to walk past but it's a totally different picture with him in it, makes a story - I have to learn to do this sometimes!

The gent on the right looks as though he is "losing his cookies".
A brilliantly composed shot.

Mik's comment seems to b how I feel-- Well, Taggart's are Scots, Oh well…….
Such splendour for an Archbishop so much for the meek inheriting the earth.

The word Hibernation does sound rather appealing especially on a grim day like this Bill. Great image"
