Especially in that format and aspect ratio.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

That's a lovely compliment TPFKA@W.

If you would like the original file, then you can print it yourself. (File is BIG but I can get it online for you to download.)

If it’s not a bunch of trouble to do I’d love to give it a try. Thanks.

Ok,I'll have a go. I'll let you know when it's done.

I'll send it in "tiff" format as that's lossless.

PS. Can you resize your Buggs image please? It's bloody huge,..

I will just get rid of it. Big Silly Girl, who called me a moron, is only popping in to lurk about 4 x a day so I've no need for it.

Some from the last couple of days in "lockdown" Cornwall. (Luckily this areas count as a "dog walk" exercise for me.)

I cannot remember who was the Dartmoor Pony fan here, but these are imported Dartmoor Ponies, used to keep moorland heather under control here in Cornwall.

ETA:
Even today with all its news of doom and gloom, waking up to a sunrise like this one cheers the soul. Taken around the back of the Manor, 6.35 am.

Nice ones. Looks like just enough open space to meet the 6-foot apart rule.

Me on the ponies! Those sunrise shots are amazing!

I have to get my website up so I can share some photographs too. It just totally not in my wheelhouse to set it up.

Barbed wire, it's there to stop the cattle rubbing themselves on the wall, and potentially knocking it down. The wall is listed as of historical importance, and on a "site of special scientific interest." (SSSI)

Today's dog walk produced, (among others.)

Image

In case you're wondering, this is the entrance to Maen Castle.
The monument includes a cliff castle, situated on a small headland overlooking Gamper Bay at Mayon Cliff. The cliff castle survives as a roughly-rectangular enclosed area of approximately one hectare. It is defined by steep cliffs on two sides, a boulder strewn slope on the third and a rock-cut ditch measuring up to 2.4m deep with stone revetted rampart and counterscarp of up to 2m high on the fourth. The main rampart has a massive stone wall of up to 60m long, 3.7m wide and 1.5m high. There is a well-preserved gateway lined with stone which contains a later post medieval shelter. The cliff castle defences partially overlie an earlier field system and kink to integrate an earlier lynchet into the defensive line. The outer ditch appears to have been built after the inner defensive rampart wall and the up-cast material used instead to construct the counterscarp bank.

The cliff castle was first described by Edmonds in 1845 - 50. Partial excavations between 1939 and 1949 by the West Cornwall Field Club produced evidence for the occupation of the interior including layers of charcoal and burnt material together with sherds of Iron Age pottery and medieval grass-marked wares. Their findings were re-interpreted by Quinnell who suggested the cliff castle was possibly in use not only in the Iron Age but throughout the Romano-British period and even into the medieval period, having been built between 800 and 400 BC. Although not confirmed, later surveys suggest it may have Late Bronze Age or Neolithic origins.

A lovely shot.
It's on the wall of our local church. (Dedicated to St Sennen, founded in 520 AD)

It's to the left of the entry in this image, obscured a bit by that shrub.
