Gorgeous day today down in the marshlands but so BREEZY! Lots of breath holding in between sweat streaming, burning eyeballs and a smile thinking; WOW this is a GLORiouS day! A new year actually!
Will workshop some more pics of the area and this beauty.

Another dramatic and rather noisy capture, and a view ...just like taken from an old fashion TV set with this provoking frame dear Brenda...how are you today?!! Enjoy the glorious days...this image is filled with optimism ;)
I must say you are really coming along in your work. Love the composition and beautiful detail in the dragonfly. Other then some noise in the BG (which can easily be removed, check WS) I think this is very attractive. Well done!!
