Shot at the back end of last year on the DMC-TZ6 and also in rushed circumstances so I’m not overly happy with many of these, will go back and re-shoot these with the 40D at some point in the future (and make a much better job!!)

No mine names, no location, no history!!….sorry but these places need protecting.
