That is an amazing picture. Suddenly I'm tired of being inside, I want to go out! To climb mountains!

Beautiful photo, taken in our backyard. It reminds me that I take my home for granted. My son has been nagging me to take a trip to the park since he has a season pass.

glad you like it. yeah, it is a wonderful place. and it is nearly empty at sunrise and set. so even with the huge crowds it's relatively easy to work.

and thanks for the favs!

this is beautiful. the water/wave action almost looks surreal. Did you play with it a little? I would love to draw this digitally if you would give me permission.

The only playing i've done was to expose for 1/20s to cause the textured water movement and i used a polarizer to cut some glare from the sky.

sure you can draw it. just send me a message so i can see it!

I very much enjoyed reading "Dusk To Dawn". I laughed a few times.
Whether it is the whole truth or not, I see you have some creative writing skills. Thanks!
