My feet often feel like that after a long day on the trail. Smile In the hobby of photographing waterfalls, one has to be careful about concrete overshoes. To that end, I try not to annoy the "wrong" people!!! Lovely shot, Jenn, and thanks for the smiles today!

Viewed large, this has an enormous amount of great detail, right down to the bits and bobs that have fallen into the floorboard cracks. Great processing, Jennnn.

It makes a great image, Jenn, lovely light and shadow. We use our old boots as plant pots, it's extremely effective.

That is one heavy boot you spotted Jenn. Well taken Smile In my eyes it really is a bit of a waste . I would have filled it with earth and planted flowers would have looked much more welcoming and raised a smile xxxx

Excellent use of the boot Jennn, makes a great subject, well captured, Adrian
