Danny,Thanks for your kind comment. Glad you liked it.
So beautiful! Congrats. What lens did you use? Any tips for taking such an image?
For about 30 years I have been an occasional casual photographer. After the digital revolution, I have moved up from a (free give away) <1MP camera to P&S to my 1st DSLR (Rebel XSi) to my now 1 year old 7D. As I head into retirement soon, I have decided to make photography my main hobby (terrible at golf and not athletic enough for tennis) as I become more and more awed by the beauty of photos and the amazing number of talented photographers and their work (now so easily found on the internet). I was hoping to do well in this, my first challenge, but when I saw all the other magnificent entries, I personally thought many others were better. Thanks to all who voted for my entry. I am both honored and encouraged.
