Wassail!

I did a small wedding yesterday, and in the evening the pub held The Orchard-Visiting Wassail.

Well, Undercover Nigel, you seem to have captured strange going-on...fortunately, I suppose, there is no National Security implication.

Marvellous image.
Nigel Clack: I dont know about under cover but I should have been under an umbrella!

Very atmospheric - the light on the feather is brilliant. Funny you should put this up - we had a knock on the door last night - it was my neighbour, sporting a full set of bells on her knees, asking if she could go into our orchard and bless the apple trees! Apparently you have to hang a piece of toast on the tree and sing the Wassail song - only in Britain would this happen!

Nigel Clack: Yep thats exactly what over 100 people did here, and drunk plenty of Wassail and other ciders!!

And so is this! Cheers, H.
I love the lighting, Nigel! I particularly like that only the feather on this hat has any color. It is a great photo
This is superb, Nig. Has a 'Voodoo' feel?!
Nigel Clack: It was certainly different but all very good natured, especially with all the cider being drunk!smile
