beautiful, even if at a distance that came out great |
She looks better under these colors than the other photo, great job John. |
please accept my humblest apologies for the mistake. I just took it from the MaritimeData.com website. I think I'll stop trying to add any information.
unfortunately it felt very much like autumn too... I had just been soaked by a hail and thunder storm.
I like the waterwash on the bow.
Good light, dark sky and some wind makes photo's more interesting. Those conditions are comming with the autumn.
