I really like this photo -- looks like a water painting. Nice job. #11998

Love this one Dudley. #20229

Thanks Gail & Carol. This is another example of seeing something you like but at the time you're not sure why. (I've got bunches that I still don't know why I photographed). I like the texture and alluring value of this one. Like a fine wine though, you have to let it breath awhile before it becomes pleasing. This is not one that draws too much attention if you are scrolling through lots of photos. Sometimes they turn out to be the best in the long run.
Thanks again,
Dudley #20317

Thanks, It's amazing what one can learn by observing the talents of others at this site. I am awestruck by some of the works displayed. I was always told that if I wanted to better myself, hang around people who were more talented & wiser. So, here I am.
Thanks again,

Dudley...I'm so delighted you have a gallery and that this superb image was part of it! Congratulations for a well deserved win! I really like the antique wagon in your gallery too. Is this lighthouse from Maine? All those years I've lived there and have never captured one of their lighthouses. Keep on shooting these awesome scenes! #24550

Thanks Dolores,
The light house is in Nova Scotia at Peggy's Cove just below Halifax. I wanted to get a sunset shot, but my wife & the other couple with us were freezing. It was very cold & windy that day. Some people don't understand how some photographers can be driven by there desire to capture a simple shot, or what we will go through to get it.
