It looks a bit dangerous Nick, the big crane in front, which is a good vanishing point of the clouds I think. Great white-and-blue shot. Best wishes to you and have a lazy weekend uni*

unialt ~ Cranes are all about balance ~ weight and counter weight ~ the main thing is that you found this an uplifting shot Uni ~ now a lazy weekend sounds like fun and if it keeps on raining like it has this morning that might just be forced upon me too :)))

all the very best to you Uni ~ Ciao nick

possibly a little subtle in thumbnail size to attract much attention, but I had a look anyway :) - nice idea and very well lined up Nick!


Nick Weall on June 27, 2009

Graham Hobbs ~ Yes I think you must be right Graham far to subtle, but it is there for those who are alert or who read the titles :)))

So I'm very glad that you have spotted it and it is just a bit of fun really of course :))

All the best to you from nick

steve drury ~ Actually I think it was a rather enterprising scrap metal dealer hoping to pop it onto the back of his truck ~ the shady antics they get up to hey? :))

War of the Worlds idea was a good un though. Ciao nick
