Thank you, Nouchet, for your visit and kind comments.
Best wishes, Leo
Nouchet & Wally.
Thank you both for your kind comments. Wally, it would be cool to be able to say that the crystals were a foot tall (wow!), but alas, they probably were no more that an inch in height. That's a guess as I was not able to get very close as the lake was not sufficiently frozen. I thought it strange to see this clear spot on the edge of a snow-covered lake with these crystals growing on it.
Greetings to France and Downeast Maine, Leo
Thank you, Wally, for your thoughtful evaluation of my humble effort. Don't tell Neil Young, but I may just do both. lol
A few years ago, I planned a trip up your way with my wife, brother and sister-in-law to finally see the Fall colors and scratch another thing off my bucket list. Sadly we had to cancel, so my bucket list remains intact with Fall colors very near the top. If we ever make it up that way, I'd like to look you up so we can swap war stories and photo tips over a cup of coffee.
Until then, from one Canon EOS guy to another, happy shooting!
Best wishes from Spokane, Leo
Thanks for the link to this shot, Wally. The beautiful bokeh and color contrast really make the ring jump off the screen. Like the title, too.
Best wishes from Eastern Washington, Leo
Thanks for the visit, Wally. Glad you like this shot. Although it looks B&W it was actually shot in color.
Sorry to hear about your friend. As I'm sure you know, the KC-135 is scheduled for replacement over the next few years. Don't know when Fairchild is scheduled to start receiving the new ones. Kinda out of the loop since I retired.
Best wishes, Leo
Thanks again I Like.
You missed a good one here, Suzi! Wish you had been there.
As for the kind words, I meant them. You taught me to not always go for the big picture, but to get up close and personal to capture the nuances. Lesson learned, I think.
Согласна! Ни один фантаст такое не придумает! Спасибо, Танюшка!!!
