One of those fantastic watercolour type images again. You can do so many of them. BTW, what do I have to do to get you to make a return visit once in a while :-)

Another lovely one. I haven't played with the HDR in a while, perhaps it's time to give it another try.

Looks like a painting that should hang over a fireplace or sofa. Very nicely done.
