  5. Thanks Gordon, Ben and Roosje for your comments.

    Ben, I believe the "girl" in the background was actually a bloke carrying a plastic shopping bag... but by all means let your imagination run wild :wink:

    Yes, the gardener was watering the tulips in the last image. It was the end of the day and the sun was low, which provided the backlit effect for the spray.
