As there are now quite a large number of photos on the site, it is becoming difficult to find newly added shots to established collections, so in future I will add new shots here for a few days before transferring them to their relevant collections. Newly added collections will continue as before - I hope that makes sense!
Click on the large image on the right to take you to a full screen picture and you can scroll through from there with the left and right arrows. Leave the cursor still for a couple of seconds and the various "tools" disappear until the cursor is moved again. Exit from that screen back to this screen via the "X" in the top right.
