Sunset on Abbey Pond

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Unable to resist the temptation of grabbing another Abbey sunset, I hopped over the boundary wall (trespassed) with all my gear and hurriedly set up the tripod next to several other geeks who were already there..With a few moments of me taking this shot, the other geeks spoiled my view when they moved towards the pond to capture the full reflection..Ah well, you cant win em' all!

Wonderful photo, Jim!

Once in my life I will visit UK and all these fantastic places, so I will keep "Sunset on Abbey Pond" in my favourites not only because I like it! ;o)

My best wishes to you from Wolf
