Film number: 58; frame number: 14,

I received this print on 13 September from Frank Downey. Unfortunately I could not get the shadows in the right place. On subsequent visits the sun had gone by the time I got there. This photogaph would need to be taken with the sun high in the sky (to clear trees )so probably cannot be done properly until next May. I would like to try this one again,probably next May, if all goes well. So please return the print in due course. However if that is outside your time scale I hope you will find one of the photographs I have taken suitable for a colour print. I used the rest of the film to retake a couple of other scenes at Comber and Hillsborough with a lens that was not available when I took the scenes on film number 11.

Photograph taken at 11.00, 13 September, 1990.
