    Formby Reds

    I've had the same problem with them getting too close, last year I went and one jumped up on one the fences and took a monkey nut right from my hand. On the other hand it was nice to see them really close up, even though I didn't manage a photograph.

    An Old Chuffer

    Thanks Chris. I did clone out a street lamp on image 2 as it was quite intrusive (literally half way between the boiler front and the mill buildin). I never thought about doing it for the other images.

    Paint Abstracts

    I spotted this, I'm not sure where, in 2015. I really like abstract things like this, which was some wooden boards that had been used to paint something else. I liked the abstract quality but yet reminded me of a wooded landscape. So both the B/W and colour versions.

    A nice set of images Dave, interesting to see that they're still being waved through Townsend Fold crossing on the Yellow Flag, the Black 5 44871 that I took on 1st Jan was being waved through on yellow
