This month's set of images really sets the baseline!

For such a collection of stunning images to have to be decided upon was a very difficult decision.

Really well done to every one.  :clap:  :clap:

Thanks to you all and to Ivo. Am I allowed to take my own imqge out of the list and just say that I too thought the standard of the others breathtaking. Mike's image is really something original and exquisitely crafted. I am honoured to share a page with it.
Very best,
Olly
