Cheers Neil, I'm chuffed to bits with this one, When the sun's dropping fast and every exposure is 30 seconds and with the image being made up of 14 frames from side to side you only get one chance to catch that special moment, the changes that happen over 7 minutes are unbelievable. Fortunately I started and finished at just the right time and was able to balance out the changing exposures. I was hoping for a starburst between the gap in the cloud but I'll happily live without it :o)

Many thanks !

Let's be honest, Sam. It's not good, is it? It's effin Brilliant! What a corker!

What's that white car doing on Cowbar bank? Looks a tad bit dodgy!

The detail is lovely, and the timing is spot on. I'm happy for you. I think you should get that printed, without doubt.

No starburst Sam,boy, you're easily pleased;-)) This is wonderful mate,no wonder you're chuffed,i'd have been doing handstands on that cliff.I know you've done this scene before,but no two shots are the same,its a proper BD!!

I wouldn't want to live anywhere else Denise for that very reason. That said I'd be happy to spend a year or two in the highlands of Scotland or the west coast of Ireland with an occasional trip to Barbados :o)

Many thanks !
