Wild Sunflowers
For the next few days I will be featuring images from my old Fuji S7000. I haven't used this camera much since I got my D70 and decided to dust the cobwebs off of it and renew an old friendship. This image was taken yesterday evening in a bed of wild sunflowers located near Mosquito Lake. The selective coloring is something new to me and was done in PhotoImpact Pro Ver. 10.
