    Well, there was........ so after a morning sitting in hospital getting frustrated with the complete lack of organisation that the Birmingham NHS Trust seem to be afflicted with I went for a nice calming walk with me mother down in Coalport.

    Came back with this which I think is rather nice and relaxing.

    Thanks it is calming. No need to "improve" on it:rotfl:
    :offtopic:
    As one who works in the NHS I am in total despair sometimes at how so much money seems to be spent on the wrong things and how the Central Govt create populist unworkable targets that do not benefit anyone, From Patients to staff just putting everyone who works there under undue pressure whose result is .. well chaos TBH
    Rant over and time for a :beer:

    Where have the blue skies gone:(??
    .. This could be in the dead of winter you know. It wasn't was it?:D

    Well it is a variation , I wouldn't say better, just different :
    Calming? A tad Moody? depends on how many beers youve had (I think):hiya:

    Hi ya


    I may be going against the grain here, but I think the B&W version is much better:thumbsup:

    Don't ask me to explain why because I can't, but all I can say is the colour one doesn't do it for me and yet the B&W one works for me. Its got that Old England sort of feel to it.

    As ever just my 2 pence worth.

    Cheers Holo:smashin::smashin:

    Horses for courses ,:smashin:
    ..and it reinforces the fact that Photographs ( I dont like "images") can evoke different responses .. beauty being in the eye of the viewer
    Who knows?. an HDR version might even be "Better" :rotfl:
    I think think are both good.. but dont mind me Im going through some cheap ( but nice) Belgian lager ATM!:D
