Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    This really intrigued me when Fred was accepting images in the canon group.great eye and love the treatment.

  • Thank you, Di. Just added a bit of brightening and the orange vignette, as the grass wasn’t too pretty. It really was an unbelievable tree stump!

    This is lovely old trunk and love your processing on this. Fab texture want to run my hands over the wood to feel it.
