Early Evening Frolic

Uploaded: August 12, 2005


Allie and big brother, Hunter, were visiting in the area, and my camera and I were privileged to take aim at them both. Allie was romping in the waters of Lake Erie when I captured this adorable expression.

Hikey effect plus a mocha action with dodging and burning
