Beautiful image, but it sure was an afternoon killer. It took a bit of educated guessing for me.

Excellent puzzle Tom!

I agree, excellent image and solve! (and no guessing or deep)

I had my doubts at the beginning as to whether it'd be moderate look-ahead, deep, or guessing when I got stuck early on...and then stuck again after solving 2/3 of it... but it turns out to be moderate. I wrote down the more difficult-to-see moves(though not the simpler el) if anyone wants or needs it...but I've got front and back of a notepad page filled, so I'm not putting it all down here unless someone requests it.

Great puzzle. Not tradionally solveable. Did require some trail and error for me. Fantastic image. Thanks
