O come, Thou Day-spring

O come, Thou Day-spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

Great photo. Did you take it?

Thanks. Yep. I don't think I'll even try to offer any points for it because it could be almost anywhere. The real trick to it is that there were actually four people walking along a ridge. If you look carefully at the legs of the middle "figure", it is two people. This arrangement meant that the two or three other attempts at this shot all didn't look so good because two of the four figures overlapped a little. But in this one, they overlap almost perfectly (except for the legs) so the shot looks much better. Lucky timing!

I forgot to say that the image was actually taken on Lindisfarne on my 30th birthday. :-)
