Excellent use of the evening sunlight Peter. I am sure that you chose the best PoV and the silhouette is making a bold statement. An all-round great photo.

Excellent! I used to live in a neighbourhood called "Palmyra" in Perth .... all the street names are related to Palmyra, I'll explain later! However, it got me interested enough to discover the history about the real "Palmyra" ! Love you work Peter!
