@DarkElf: Thanks. I wish there was a little more detail in the burnt out area where the sun is breaking through, but with a single exposure I had to compromise

Kyu from Japan

Now this is the thing...I like the clouds and tone but in the half light would want a little more detail from the buildings...

This also is the theme of my next few shots, maybe we will be an Island of ponds in the future?

@Kate: There was a great modern production of the play Comus a few years ago done in the castle here. The central premise was that the hills round here had been reduced to islands :0

at times like these, it's probably flooding ... but as i said in a comment to doug the other day, there's so much beauty in disaster as well !!!
