  1. Well, the weather is starting to cooperate. Winds have died down and the temps are mid-high 70's. Hard to beat it. Nice place to visit for sure.

    This is a quick 'snap'................ not a staged shot with perfect lighting. The amazing thing about the water is how clear it is. :eek:. Has that 'blue lagoon' type of look right now. Well, as long as you throw in a few thousand Cypress trees. :wink:

    The lagoon in the background is teaming with migratory birds. A local told us that a couple of puffins were spotted there recently. :eek:

  2. There's a big grey tree in the middle of your beautiful landscape shot. :p
  3. Pardon me for being critical as I am new here. I find the tree centered in the foreground distracting. Otherwise I think the shot is beautiful.

  4. Mike and TKO

    No problem with the comments. :tongue:

    Like I said, this was a quick 'snap'.......... jumped off my bike and pulled the camera out and shot. If I had a redo on this shot I'd probably offset the Cypress tree and put some flash into it so that the limbs wouldn't be so dark. :668:

  5. Beautiful Lagoon

    That's what I was going to add -- off center the tree and add a fill flash. You could also try underexposing the foreground, which would make thee lagoon less bright and the tree would be a silloute.
