You lucky ***,
Here it was after 30-45 minutes or so and the scene was soo different and NOT pretty that i packed my stuff up. When i was by my bike the whole thing became foggy again, .... #@$#@!$@## >:-(

I like this one Rob, the one thing i miss is a little more contrast in front, .... paletmes!!! ;-)
