      I like this a lot Michael. The lighting and composition are spot on and give me at least 2 possible stories. The trees can either be worshiping or attacking the tree in the middle (or maybe all this is just because my sinuses are acting up right now …)

        It never crossed my mind that trees were “worshiping or attacking” other trees Bobbie! I'll have to think about that for a while, lol. I hope you feel better!

    Just this week i discovered what i call a “padlock bridge” and played with trying to get  the whole bridge in (and i did) but decided i liked this view better and it seems to fit the challenge this week.  i love riding around and just discovering places.padlock bridge - along one side

      Lockwood and other manufacturers must love this craze. I bet sales have gone through the roof since it started. I believe they've been banned over here now because of the extra weight and stress they put on the bridge structures.

    Billys Croc. Returned after confiscation by the Fashion Police with strict instructions that Crocs were never to be worn outside of Billy Towers. Being caught breaking this ruling would entail having headphones super glued to Billy's ears and being forced to listen to Adele non stop for 24 hours. Needless to say the Crocs remain in the Billy closet.

      🙂 billyspad, i actually like this, not sure why, just what most crocs look like with bits of stuff on them, probably from hiding out in the closet.

        I am truly glad you like this shot Dorothy. I consider it one of my finest achievements catching my Croc in difficult lighting conditions but still retaining the mood that only silicone type shoes can portray. The bits of stuff and under bed fluff I felt had to be left making the story easier for the casual viewer to understand. A cleaned and polished Croc would have told a different story I am sure.

      Snap! My crocs haven't seen the light of day for some time now and they reside in the closet also. Funny how social pressure can influence one's footwear choices. If it wasn't for social media canning them, I'd wear them out to dinner 🙂

        If I get to visit Oz we will defy convention and wear our Crocs with pride along with Union Jack shorts, football shirts and a knotted handkerchief on our heads just like two Brits on vacation. We shall of course be drunk and accompanied by two very white cellulite toting fat birds with tattoos on their legs and shoulders with another hideous inking peeking out of a huge bra doing its utmost to defy gravity and where the elastic straps have gone grey.

        Hi Dorothy, he was a very shy dog and nothing I could do would get him to look directly at me when I lifted my mobile up to snap him. He had hidden under a table and I had to crawl under there with him for this shot. In the end I love the shot because it's a different view to what we normally see with dogs.

        Can´t complain Graham, cleanest and clearest air thinkable except when filled with volcanic ash or sand from Sahara brought by South-Easterly winds as it has been the last few days.
        The clarity in the photo can partly be blamed on the Man on Mars trick in Photoshop, kindly pointed out to me by Rob Eyers – in fact Photoshop colour management on steroids. Can recommend it.

        It was quite high – above allowed limits – but there were no planes or helicopters near by so I dared brake the rules. It is sheep – from the autumnal roundup in North Iceland last year.
        I can´t see any animals outside the fence, except humans and maybe horses.

      Dave: i love this. were the cars moving? all the curves fit together so well! and if you didn't know (and everyone else as well) i love b&w.  i find this one interesting because it gives a definite time past feeling.

        Rail cars were stopped. I was asked to leave shortly after this shot was taken. Apparently I was trespassing on railroad property.
