HIGH NOON in Windsor

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
HIGH NOON in Windsor
HIGH NOON in Windsor
APRIL 2009 FINALIST
Rule of thumb: Don't shoot at high noon!
Think it worked with this one..don't you? lol:)
Windsor, CA is one of the most charming little towns I've seen. Their entire commerce area has had a 'facelift' and everything looks like this...sort of a gingerbread town, so to speak!
I just LOVE this place, which is also the home of one of our favorite BP'ers!

A sun-drenched beauty, Pat. The intense light brought out the specialness of this view, and you managed to do it with no blown out spots of any sort! Great work.

Love it, love the colors. Rule of thumb 1, shoot when you have a camera in your hand. Rule of thumb 2, have a camera in your hand any time you can. :O)
