The economic down turn seems to of hit most people in one way or another,have they been laid up for long Les? Beautiful shot,the colours are amazing.
Les Auld: Thanks Graham, I know what you mean, I feel that I have been laid up for many years. Thanks for the comment.
A sign of the times I guess
Les Auld: Yes indeed Bill, thanks for the comment.
Well captured Les..Not very old and mothballed..thats hard to believe. Love the colours.
Les Auld: A sign of he times I suppose Ron, thanks for the comment.
A sad sign of the times in some ways. Good that less oil is being consumed (so it should last longer) but bad that the crews have been laid off, presumambly. Lovely colours as usual with your recent shots.
Les Auld: The problem is Alan that there could be more lorries on the road, thanks for the comment.
A great shot Les and there outlines are even reflected in the foreground water very nicely.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, appreciate the comment.
super shot Lessmile
Les Auld: Thanks Tim smile
