The scene above the serpentine lake at Studley Royal looking towards Fountains Abbey. Surprise View, known as Anne Boleyn's Seat, was named this because paintings show that there was a decapitated statue on this spot before Aislabie bought the estate in the 1700s.

My apologies Ian for deleting the first version on which you commented but when seen the next morning in daylight it was very much over edited and had to go.

As Jethro said Sam...grand as owt!! . I can see what you were after when you were backed up against the fence,i didn't realise this was the shot until we spoke the other night. I've a feeling we would have been up on that scaffold if that canny joiner hadn't been there;-)) this'll do though.

Cheers Neil, you know me too well :o) it's just a shame he was there though as you say this will do and it's better than I imagined it would be under the circumstances.
