    There used to be (about 2 decades ago) a great pub just about three hundred yards from where I took that shot...but it really was in the middle of nowhere and the owner burnt it down for the insurance money...so the closest local is about three to four kilometres (ah well, I need to get back to a fighting weight, the walks will do me good! :D)

    At least for a little while, breath in the fresh hill air (before the bad weather comes...)

    The hill in the picture is Black Hill, part of the Pentlands, just South of Edinburgh if anyone was wondering.

    A quick snap of a portrait that turned out very nice - taken at a show

    From the Suffolk Show - and I don't envy this chap in the slightest having seen him working on various hedgehogs and other sculpts trough a very hot day; even though he was in a shaded spot those chainsaw trousers are very hot to wear even in the middle of winter.

    Yeah I'd looked for it a few times without using search and couldn't find it - shocking how quick it had vanished - but ts back now for all to share in ^

    Darn it Ace if the weather is getting that good you might just be able to get the sunglasses out if the rain lightens up and more to give a break in the cloudcover!

    There's loads of free hosts out there; imgur; 500pix; flickr; smugmug etc... So hopefully it shouldn't be too hard to continue sharing

    Whoop, whoop, New Camera! 300 mm lens.

    What a difference a wind shift makes:
