Very nice, you can soon lose the drops by editing further

Yup... Nice composition to this... Having collected a few water drops on long exposures myself over the years, my general advice would be to try and find a composition spot that avoids as much spray as possible (sounds obvious, but there are often things you can do with umbrellas, wind direction, your body, draping yourself/hands around the camera etc to keep the spray off the lens)... If you're head on to it though and it's unavoidable, then try keeping a towel over the lens till the very last moment, and wiping the lens or outermost filter before every shot... Massive faff, but often worth it in the end (apologies if you've tried all this, just thought worth mentioning in case...)...

Thanks guys, thanks for the tips Bill. If I had noticed the spray on the lens it would have been fine as I could have spent a bit more time trying to get a clear shot, but as tends to happen this was the last shot before heading home and you cant really see the drops on the review screen on the camera. Never mind it gives me an excuse to take another wander up that way.
