Wow, thanks very much guys, I thought it was a goodun but when I saw the other shots i thought maybe not so good! I must apologise to the other entrants for taking advantage of my more northerly location - it does help I'm afraid!

The shot I entered was very much an edit designed to fit the entrance requirement of the competition being no more than 800px wide, and if I'd just shrunk the original it wouldn't have worked. Here is the original shot....... zoom in and scroll across!
