    :) Thank you for the add. Kathy speaks so highly of you! And she is right! You are an awesome photographer! You do an amazing job of capturing breathtaking moments in nature! Haven't had a lot of time to go through all of your albums, but ... I will manage to find some time soon! Thank you, again.

      LOL - if you are going through them all, it will take a while...

      I forwarded your poems you wrote, for the 2 paintings Kathy did of my photos, on to several friends. I liked them a lot.

        Well, thank you. I am honored. (And yes, I could see that it might take a pot of coffee, not just a cup, to get through your albums. I have always loved the art of photography ... from afar, though, having absolutely no gift or talent for it. I have seen many things that I took pictures of, congratulating myself of the moment I captured, only to look at the finished product and tried to remember what the heck I was seeing ... oh well. I admire others works and applaud their creativity and ability!
        Maybe I can ply my meager talents at a few more of your photos as I get through them ... ?

          I like to work with available light to see what I can capture. An example would be a full moon rising - behind a full bank of clouds - done with a 4 minute exposure. Or a before sunrise shot with the car's headlights shining out on a dock.

            Awww, thanks for thinking I would understand that.
            Just kidding, I sort of do ... The four minute exposure is way beyond my equipment capacity. The available light ... that I get, and all I usually have to shoot with. My equipment consists of a Walmart Digital Camera. Available everywhere and affordable to most people. And requires all the technical knowledge of: point, push button, repeat as neccessary...
            It is interesting to hear the process behind the result, though! Maybe, if I read carefully, I might pick up a trick or two and be able to recognize what I photographed, then ... :)

              Here is a long exposure at midnight

              And a pre-sunrise shot using the car's headlights
