Mike from Lichfield, United Kingdom

Another super photo. If I'd have been behind the camera I'd have been a little unsure as to whether the framing would work or not here, but it does. The PP is excellent too.

@Mike: Thanks Mike!'s the kind of composition that really suits extreme wide angle lenses like Sigma 10-20 that I used here.
