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.

I've got an old S7000, I'm trying to encourage Margaret to use it. I'll just show her how good the images can be thanks Donald
