A great shot, the colours are wonderful and the water looks as though it's on fire.

skida on January 14, 2008

Thanks Ian. I'm quite proud of this one.

Thanks Brabason. The light helped a lot. During the daytime, when the sun is higher, the silos are a very washed-out brown colour.

Give me a few more months and Blyth will be obscured by blue dots on GE!
