Dave, you certainly have an "eye".
Why don't my pictures turn out like this !!

Just luck I guess :)

If anyone's wondering why this has a strange soft look to parts of it - it's a long exposure in not far off total darkness - so the tress etc were moving in the wind.

More than luck Dave. You are a wonderful photographer. I particularly love your wildlife photographs.

I've been thinking of a book for a while - but it would be expensive in small numbers. A calendar I hadn't considered - but will consider it for 2010. Could be a goer :)

Excellent composition and so many memories. I used to spend many an hour fishing on the canal towpath.

Keep up the good work. I enjoy seeing all the pictures on the site but I think it's fair to say yours are among the best.

When did the boat basin get cleaned out? It was silted up and full of weeds last time I saw it. See P-a-D 3/6/08.

I don't think Big John's comment is accurate or deserved.
