When shooting a lot of landscapes, I often miss the beauty that's at ground level. I just need to recompose!

I hear you Ken! That is why on more than one occasion I have gotten a weird look from my hubby when I just stand there looking like I am spacing out...I am really looking for something.
Fabulous color, textures and contrast!

What an excellent composition, Ken! This is what I need to remember, too, sometimes. I get caught by those grand views around here, and forget about the small details.

Ken,
Ditto on Shawn's comments; great job!
by the way you didn't miss this one!...or did one of the others see it.
You don't have to answer.:)
That's one of the things so neat about this site, you get to learn from other's perspective.
