G'day there, Susie - how is everything going for you?!! Phil and I are both well...except for the fact that I am suffering some lower back muscular pain (which I've had before, but not for a long time!) which is rather 'cramping my style' at the moment - lol!! Oh well, "this too shall pass"!! ;o)

This is a BEAUTIFULLY captured AND edited image, Susie, and I L-O-V-E the gate with the raindrops on it!! The lush foliage behind it really makes the gate stand out, too!! The lighting is GORGEOUS, and, like Lynn H said, I also think that the "colours, clarity and design elements ARE wonderful" here!! :o)

I think that this image would make an EXCELLENT entry into this month's 'April Showers' theme contest, too - what do YOU think?!! You could re-enter it, at your last opportunity, on the 30th!! ;o)

Anyway, we hope you had a GREAT weekend, and that you have a WONDERFUL week, too, Susie!! We've had quite a bit of rain recently, over a fair bit of NSW, so that has been FABULOUS!! Sadly, it wasn't was all VERY acceptable, as you can imagine!! ;o) #4229027
