...another during the precurser winds of Ophelia, taken along the ledge of an ancient fort here...wind, rich colors, sky influenced this as did the energy in the clouds...a whimsical capture...

Robert,

This whimsical, rich dance captures such beauty and brings lightness to my heart. If I could be so mundane in the midst of such awe inspiring photography, would you mind if I asked you how you set up this shot and in what settings you had the camera? Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your colorful world.
