    That D700 has really pulled every scrap of detail into this image of Smeaton’s Tower Don, I bet it looks wonderful as a framed print and doubtless one will find itself hanging in a house in London any day now, a beauty,
    Regards, Rod.

  • I think it’s the old saying “When I get around to it” or as they say in Cornwall “I’ll do it drectly” Ha Ha. Thanks Rod.
