awarewriter said...

I like it Pat. The low angle and the grass in the foreground make this a strong composition.

Genie said...

Your walk around the lake looks much cooler that the one I took today. The cat and dog have had a horrible bout with fleas so I had to leave for 4 hours in the middle of the day while the house was fumigated. The animals were put in their kennels and placed out in our coolish barn. Then I hit the road with camera and lens in hand to entertain myself in the 103 degree heat. I got a shot very similar to this one I am posting this week. Unfortunately when I was screwing in the wide angle lens, Because of my sweaty hand, I got the lens off kilter and got it stuck. My nephew is a professional photographer so I went to him and he got it off. How could I be so stupid as to not screw that thing on incorrectly. Love your shot...and it made the heat and the horrors of the day come back to me immediately. One of those comedy of error days at which all I could do was laugh. Relly like your capture. Happy weekend. Genie
