Great pics Ted,
              And somehow a worthy winner.Pictures that can touch and inspire dormant emotions,Perhaps thoughts of a greater being.
              And some would call it art.Yet the two are so far apart. The lonely shore with the unique bush clinging to the gravel,The light
              shining down on the lighthouse,real powerfull light,The cord connecting the lighthouse to the dwelling below.Very powerfull stuff.
               My favourit pic was one of an old deserted sawmill in alaska,perched on a rock with the flume still intact but the leat gone,surrounded
              by fingers of frozen ice.One would wonder how on earth it was possible to survive in such desolation,never mind work in it.Of course it must
             have been seasonal.Same with that pic on the New Zealand shore.Powerfull stuff.I must see if I can dig out the pic of the Alaskan sawmill.

I've always dreamed of being able to produce pictures even a tenth of that quality and can fully appreciate the effort that goes into work of that calibre. Somehow circumstances alway seem to work against you, a full moon, or high but almost invisible cloud, dew on the mirrors or objective, or cloud that rolls in just as the telescope reaches ambient temperature, or more usually just have to get up early for work tomorrow Sad

I love that piccy of the sunspot with the faculae falling over it, humbling to think our Earth would easily fit inside.
