Igor, Valerio, PiGi, John, André Ivan, Domi and Tanja, many thanks to you all for sharing your enjoyment of this scene which is just about three hours away from my home. I love moody shots and if I can add a light-house my wishes are granted.Thanks for the many awards and apologies for the late replies to some of you guys.

Regards, Herb

Lunaris, Angelika and Heinz, great to see you all again, this time admiring one of our Lancashire lighthouses. It seems that it was well worthwhile to dash to this lighthouse from some 5km away on seeing that there was to be a sunset. Thanks for your great awards.

Grigoris welcome to my gallery. Great to see another new visitor here. Very happy you like my work. Please call again.

Best wishes to you all from the UK, Herb
