Love the soft mistiness of this image, Dale -- beautiful! BTW, the Zion image is taken on the patio behind the Museum.

Dale Hardin 10/2/2012 9:19:11 PM

Thank you Katherine. Teresa was with me when we took these images on Whidbey Island. Which museum do you mean? #10352464

John Rivera level-classic 10/3/2012 5:50:09 AM

Beautiful image! #10352866

Dale Hardin 10/3/2012 7:08:05 AM

Thank you John. Hadn't visited your gallery for awhile and wish I had. It's marvelous. Was especially taken with "Olivia" and "Don't weep for me" Your post processing techniques and especially the wonderful texturing is excellent. I'm so bad at that and it's something I've really longed to learn. #10353114

Claudia Kuhn level-classic 10/8/2012 5:15:10 PM

So beautiful Dale. I was there a few summers ago, in the afternoon with blue sky, looks quite different from your image #10361131

Dale Hardin 10/8/2012 8:12:23 PM

Thank you Claudia. Love that morning light. That's why I conned Teresa into getting up at 5 am and driving for two hours. :o) #10361373

After a two hour drive we arrived just before sunrise at this bridge on Whidbey Island in Washington State. After many pre-sunrise images, we were treated to this golden wonder.
