    This is simply lovely, love the golden glow on the buildings and boats, has a real depth and #D feel. : )

  • Thank you ever so much Karen for your comments! The light in the autumn sunny evenings seems to add a warmth to the local granite and limestone buildings, some how in a softer way than the summer light
