Lorraine....this is one of those photos that you were talking about that almost took itself. No science or thought involved and I was hardly aware that I'd even pressed the shutter release....straight from the heart onto the screen with no stopping on the way. Certainly no processing as such - just the basic stuff needed to be able to post it.

Like me, all of you reading this must occasionally get these gifts too!

This is the reason why I analyse a lot on my shots that I'm not happy with, like that Paris pavement-after-the-rain shot from a few days's all so that when I get a chance like this I don't need to start should just happen of it's own accord.

It's just a shame they only happen 'once in a blue moon' :-)
