Susana Ms Heide 3/17/2009 9:30:57 AM

Thank you Max! I hadn't really "planned" this capture. It was taken about 2 or 3 years ago on our annual Easter family picnic in the apple orchard. My daughters had gotten matching dresses for Easter and we were taking a walk in the orchard (me with camera in hand, of course). They started twirling telling mom to take some pictures... and this is the result... Just a real slice of life and I think that's what makes this image special! Thank you again, Max! #7295311

Max Aureli 3/23/2009 6:36:28 PM

Thank you Susana to take your time explaining how you captured this great image!!
