As this is my 10th Birthday on BP, I thought this would be a nice image to celebrate the occasion!

John, you had me going there with the title. Our Christchurch Cathedral is in ruins so I thought this must have been taken before but now realise it's Christchurch Cathedral in another country. Hopefully our Cathedral will look like this once again. Beautifully captured and congratulations on reaching 10 years with BP.

Just OUT-BLOODY-STANDING/FAN-BLOODY-TASTIC! Seems I have missed more than a few winners since being away!
The DoF is probably the best I have ever seen! A definite winner in my book!
