Last Day

The last day of the trip was mostly dull, but with a better end.


It started with the Cerne Abbas Giant. I daren't really make a comment apart from yes thats what you think it is! Read the Wikipedia Entry

This last one shot at ISO 1000. Remarkable.

Finally I went up to the Thomas Hardy Monument in the hope of the forecast sunset. It duly arrived and I was fascinated by these tables and chairs from a catering outfit. It was very cold and windy, so there weren't any takers!

Impossible to get this right in one shot - so I took two at different exposures - top and bottom and combined them in Photoshop.

I've now got to drive home tomorrow and start editing the pictures from the two week trip. Should take until Christmas. At least!!
