I was laughing so-o hard..You just wanted an excuse to jump for joy at the great sunset pix we were getting! Love this..fav for me girlfriend. So-o glad we went! #10514792

Thanks so much. I went out in front of the camera, three times, jumped twice. But I bracketed the exposures, so I had 6 photographs to choose from. This was the first exposure from my second jump.

Anyway, it was fun. It was so pretty, I couldn't help but jump and sing with delight. I'm glad Julianne didn't mind hanging out with me. LOL!!!

Take care all,

Donna #10514808

Carol Quina 1/14/2013 1:13:23 PM

Beautiful shot! As always! I'm curious Donna if you would share with me how you get such glossy shots? #10515169

Donna La Mattino Pagakis 1/14/2013 1:28:39 PM

Thanks Carol. I will send a private email, because I want to make sure I understand your question.

But for my sunset shots, I use a tripod. I love my Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM lens and use it whenever possible!! #10515191

A self portrait, captured last night! With the new moon, we are experiencing extreme changes in the tides, at the beaches.

A big thank you to Julianne, for going on another fun photography adventure.
