Clouds in my heart
  Trapped in my heart
Trapped in my heart
The river level down the front of our house, is beginning to drop, leaving behind some interesting sand patterns. Here, the clouds appear to be trapped in a heart.

    First of all, I love this type of terrain that I think would give you so many different beautiful looks. The framing of the picture and its depth focus in on a particular area. What a wonderful surprise to see that heart shaped water puddle with the reflections of the clouds on it. That is a gorgeous sky. The colors work so well together, your lighting is outstanding, love the title. Gorgeous work my friend.

I love your decision to go vertical with the flow! That warm colored sand leads us into the cool blue. Beautiful textures! Wonderful work, Debbie!

Wow, Wow, Wow...and one more for good measure: WOW!! :) What an incredible eye you have, Ms. Down-Under...This is gorgeous! You can't beat a blue and gold color combination, so beautiful together - great pov, excellent dof, color, clarity, the trapped cloud-filled heart - everything WORKS together so beautifully, producing one unforgettable image. A big fat fave from me and all the best with this beauty next month. WTG!
