    Three great shots, Allan!
    #1: Love the OOF and colors in the first one.
    #2: You must be quite the woodsman tae get that close to wild animal in number 2--the look of surprise on the deer's face is excellent and his ears are nearly as tall as my Sadie's!;)
    #3: The sun's rays gleaming through the tree's branches is a very nice look, and the BW silhouette is very nice indeed.

    I was the founder member of the FM sports club (FM stands for F***in Mental) and we would do mountain bike tasks, usually after disconnecting our brakes at the top of the hill :)

    I used to live very close to Camperdown Park, and it is one of my favourite places. Many happy memories there. It is great to see these beautiful shots, Allan. Many thanks!
  11. Ive got some of the old mansion house Rob I need to PP and will post them up asap. It took them ages to get the scaffolding off so you could get a decent picture of it.

    And thanks everyone for the comments, Much appreciated. :)

    That would be great. When I was in Italy, I visited the original Palladian building that Camperdoon Hoose was based on.

    Some stunners there - but for me, #3 is just wonderful.

    Lovely crisp branches, that sunburst to set iyt all off, and lovely toning on the PP

    Props for getting close enough for #2

    Alan did you have your dear stalker hat on for the second or where you as startled to see each other as the image implies. Love it by the way.3rd is a beaut to!
  16. haha ye there was 3 of them in the trees up the side of that hole and we all sort of crapped it but he was just the slowest/noseyist one :D:D

    Was talking to one of the golfers playing that hole and he was saying if you hang around to dusk they come out onto the course for some tea(grass) :D
