Oh dear what's he doing

Back at Fountains Abbey last October, I took this shot for the reflections but did not realise the person on the right of the frame looked as if he was doing something he shouldn't against the wall. The answer to you're question was no he wasn't, there were ample toilets around, but the dark and long exposure just made it look that way. Happy ST

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Toilets and rubbish bin are almost always in the wrong place. It can be inferred when looking around. Debris is everywhere and rubbish bin is in the middle of it all. It's amazing, is not it. Reflections ponds are a great puzzle. Nice picture.

I was going to say, "That was one huge puddle he left behind!"
The lighting does an excellent job of highlighting the masonry details and your PoV looking through the arcade of arches adds incredible depth to this composition!!
