The Slitherer always gets in the way ! :-)

But, but, he's upright!

J.R. from Urasoe City, Japan

The shot's a goody, but I'm missing something in the narrative that follows:)

@J.R.: The Slitherer is the nickname for Doug, my mate. Have a look at http://dougp.aminus3.com/ we are always taking the mickey out of each other. He specialises in very low angle shots by crawling around on the ground. It's very rare to see him standing upright :-)

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

It's great you are both good friends to share the same hobby, especially getting out to such great places like this.

Nice frame with Doug ( I red your answer to J.R. :-))). And an attractive river ... just sit on a stone and have my feet into the water..
Have a nice day.

Aye, perhaps, but he does grant you a super sense of scale :-)

A beautiful place, the framing is superb. When I visited Betws - y - Coed it's the name that I liked, then I met a beautiful village in the middle of the forest. Your picture brings back memories.
Have a good weekend.

I love the framing in this shot Nigel! It makes me want to follow the river on it's course! Nicely captured! ;-)

franz from Baden, Austria

lovely scenery, with and without the "slitherer" ... ;-)
(on a more serious note, though, there's an excellent software called "wire worm", that allows you to "eat" not only unwanted wires but also whole people ...)

I envy you having a friend with a shared passion for photography. I see his is not the one slithering here. This is a lovely image.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Ah, fame has reached me at last, you told me that I would make something of myself if only I got up off the ground :-)) Great shot too by the way Nige
