Beautiful colours. I like the way you framed the photo with the fence at the bottom.

You can point that lens anywhere you want, Eg, you seem to always come up with a winner. MB

Oh boy, that's yummy. Very well composed, which is what I've come to expect from you. And you get some fantastic sunsets there, also!

Re your comment on Ocala DP: Yes, the guy was wearing a matching yellow helmet but I think he would be slightly miffed if you called his Harley-Davidson motorcycle a "cart." Heh, heh!

Jacob said...

Oops, I forgot...there's a new poem on Creative Confections which you might enjoy!

Jacob said...

Hi EG. Re your questions on Stone Creek: Yes, as fishy as it sounds, that is the fisheye effect of the Canon S95. And no, Santa leaves me only a lump of coal 'cause I'm always a bad, bad boy!

Jacob said...

Thanks for the comment on CC, EG...I hadn't thought that he had his prayers answered - very good!

Being one who regularly goes into her archives, I fail to see why you need to confess or apologize for showing us wonderful images, whenever they were taken, EG! :-D
