Marilyn: Thank you so much, I am just tickled pink that one of my photos won! I am definitely not a photographer, I have no skill with cameras other than looking through the viewfinder and clicking the button. *Blush*

Keep clicking. That's a fantastic shot.

I once attended a seminar (in the days of film photography) given by a NatGeo photographer. I asked him afterward if he had any hints for an aspiring photographer. All he told me was to "shoot lots". He said that for every photo he got published, 4,999 that he shot didn't make the cut.

So if that's how it is for the real pros...*click* *click* *click* *click*

(and hope for the best)

But don't sell yourself short. You saw that shot...its potential. And executed perfectly!

Asa, thank you so much for those kind words! I sometimes take 150 or more pictures and when I scroll through them all I might save is 8 or 10 ... but I still love taking pictures!

Lin, this photo really does make one think of a Monet painting.

I agree with what Asa said in an above post, keep on clicking. You really have an eye for beauty and how to frame it.
