Thank you so much my dear friends for your lovely words! Greatly appreciated!

Laurence ~ The net defines the swimming area. Swimming is allowed within the net and to the left of it since there are a lot of boats passing by during the day! #7628760

Gosh, Bro, Right into FAVS!

I sure know what that is like to be able to slip away and do some shooting. DON'T LAUGH but I even take my Camera to the supermarket. IN CASE SOMETHING EXCITING HAPPENS! HA!

This is wonderful and you are so right. There -IS- a giant fish in the sky. It might have been a sign. Next time bring your pole and some popcorn! :)

Colors slightly enhanced in Photoshop CS3.
Yesterday, a friend invited me and my family to an early dinner. The weather was great and the clouds looked awesome.
As soon as dinner was over I disappeared for about an hour ‘cause I could not listen to their boring gossip.
I drove to the nearby beach (about two minutes from her house), got my gear, which I always keep in my trunk,
and enjoyed the sunset with my camera! This shot was my dessert. If you look closely the clouds look like a fish with its mouth open!
