Nicely composed, Patricia! #24744

Murry Grigsby

Nicely done, Patricia. Your percentage of keepers on your SA trip must have been pretty high :0) #61315

Patricia Marroquin

Thank you, Kathleen. And thank you, Murry. I don't know if I had a high percentage, Murry. I probably took about 100 film pictures and 100 digital pix, so somewhere in all that I better have gotten at least a few good ones! LOL. #61344

Judy Wick

Stopped by your gallery Patricia... Boy, I have great timing! I really like this shot. The perspective (I got dizzy feeling like I was standing right there), the colors of the umbrellas, and then, the bird in flight! Did you ask him to do this? He's so perfectly positioned! :) #61461

Joy Brown

Wonderful image, Patricia! #61484

Patricia Marroquin

Thank you, Judy and Joy. Judy, I'm glad the photo made you dizzy. Wait a minute, that's not exactly what I meant! But if the photo made you feel like you were there, then I've accomplished something. That's what I meant. :-) And no, I wish I could have orchestrated this bird's movements. Actually, I took several shots with no bird in the picture, then when I saw him through the viewfinder, I snapped again! #61502

Damian P. Gadal

Well done Patricia! #61508

Patricia Marroquin

Thanks, Damian. #61525

Gary H. Minish

Hey! I actually recognized this before reading your title! I stood right on that exact spot a couple years ago. Very well shot! A nice perspective that really conveys the heighth....especially with the bird flying far below :-) #66618

Patricia Marroquin

Thank you so much, Gary. This short visit, in February for my birthday, was my first time there. I loved it! Hope to go back and spend more time next time. #67368
