On Golden Pond

Jack Gaskin 9/29/2010 4:17:22 AM

These are always great shots yet this one has that something extra.
The droplet of water looks as if impaled on the spike of water.
FANTASTIC JOB COLOR and Light a perfect mix

Happy Shooting

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
