I was down here last night and noticed that the new road building company had left a expensive combination lock and chain that was used to fasten a tow path closed sign to the gate.
Ive been in touch with a company representative and asked if he knew what is the combination to open the lock, but he didnt so it looks like it there to stay for the time being

Wonderful wasn't it, Garry. I gave the early morning's show three parts of an hour. I looked west from the driveway at first and saw clouds appear from a previously unlit gloom, and then I looked east from the edgy comfort of my patio chair and saw the greatest Wagnerian sky ever, three raging blasts with electric blue (to say nothing of Brunhilde drawing her curtains), and then it rained. And now, at sup, I see rounded leafy limes beside an endless flowing 'Flash.

Aye, what grandeur last night. I sat in the garden till about 2 with a bottle of Margaux and Sibelius on the headphones , the trumpets blasting the magnificent finale to the 2nd Symphony as two great forks of lighting ripped the sky . Astounding . Nature can't be beaten for beauty or drama as Dave shows here with another fine picture.

That must be some finale Poet. I must sound it out. I got four pics with the Coolpix this morning but they were outshone by its four flashes that lit-up the road - the second having brought one chap to his front window. I like the skimmer's view of the 'Flash and the dusky yellow of the sunlit path, the latter coming by way of seeing instead of just looking - the mauve helped, though.
