Thank you Jose,Richard,Toni and Clive, I am delighted to receive your lovely comments and compliments.

Rich , I find carrying a garlic chicken sandwich helps ward off such attacks though the crusts are much to their liking if scattered on the water. I don't recall that episode Clive so I may just check that out.

best wishes to all,

Sam :o)

Good to see you came away with something Sam,lovely reflections and colours and youv'e managed to keep that bright light to a minimum..(curtain job again!!;-))The more i look at this the more i like it,nicely done mate. Thats some exposure time though,no wonder that duck all but disappeared.

Now just think on lad,divvent thee be bringin' yon bloody garlic withee next time we meet up tha knows;-))

Cheers Neil.

At almost 4mins the duck had time to disappear and come back again several times, you know what they were like ! It's interesting to note how a shot taken in relative darkness can come out as bright as all that. I learned a bit from doing this so that's a bonus too.

CheersClive , I did enjoy that but not quite as much as what I went on to see. When that clip finishes 12 more options are displayed and #11 the mission imossible clip is just as described.

It really is too light for a ghost. But if I were a ghost I would love to stay there, light, or no light. LIKe and F.

Thank you Eva, you're probably right and yes it's a place any ghost would love to live in though without a roof and widows it's a cold a draughty residence up there on the cliff top.

kind regards, Sam

Wonderful stuff. For an old fart wondering around with a camera, you do alright. Greting from London.

Well KC the law of averages says if you keep trying you might get lucky and you don't see what goes via the delete button :o)

Many thanks mate, I do try :o)

samsalt1, you made a wonderful slip! I think a ghost would love to live without widows!
