Beautiful Shots Always enjoy seeing the Just Before for comparison. Many folks find it hard to believe the drastic difference that takes place in just a few minutes. They are the ones who NEVER GET UP EARLY ENOUGH................
Have never been & probably never will get there. I am looking forward to my Florida Palm Trees AWHOLE LOT after this last bit of cold.

Happy Shooting
