There is a huge number of mobile homes situated just a few yards behind my viewpoint..I can almost envy their vantage point..Except perhaps when a South Easterly is blowin'

That wide-angle of yours is really showing it's abilities in this one Jim.

I expect that the volume of these shots decreases as the dawn gets earlier!!!

Cheers from Cheshire

A very impressive photo, my friend, Jim.

You've been up early in the morning, I can see. :-)

Now I wonder how much you've been post processing this picture?

All the best,

Impressive colours, Jim (all 3 of them ;) i particularly like the contrast of the appearently lush spring foliage on the platteu. i also like how everything points (draws us in) to the center of the frame. Feels like i'm zooming out as in an episode of Dr. Who ;) Despite that, it is the rock off the point that captured my attention... or was it the sun's long light on the waves.

Your comment about the mobiles, surprised me as i could not envision such contrast in a mere 180 degrees. i HAD to check out the map ;) i never imagined mobile homes in the U.K. even!
