12th November: Wow, I come back after a few days away from Flickr to find that this photo has reached no. 9 in Explore, thank you everyone! What a great surprise, particularly as the file has been sat untouched on my hard drive for the best part of a year as I thought it wasn't worthy of showing people.
Confession time: I didn't have a tripod with me when I took this, the railing at the side of the road came in handy!
I owe lots of people comments, and I'll be looking at all your photostreams shortly. :)
