Hey Laurie, this is a really GREAT image - sorry I missed it earlier! Congratulations on making the finals with it - very well deserved!

I was reading the latest comments on Penny Steiner's 'Sitting on the fence' shot (which I was very glad to see also made the finals!), and decided to have a look at your gallery Laurie...after Penny's comment about "your awesome photo", 'Preparing to Cast'!

You have many wonderful images in your gallery - it has taken me a while to work my way through them, but it is well worth the effort!
