Canon 60D, 50mm Prime.

A bit of detail from an old VW Beetle. I don’t think this is would be the original colour, but it was a pretty metallic glistening in the sunshine.
Taupo, New Zealand.

I have loved taking photographs since I was handed the “power” aged around 10. I have had many cameras since then, most costing under £100, and have enjoyed every one of them. I take pictures because I love the process and the results (sometimes) and if these can be enjoyed by others, then this is an added and welcomed bonus. Currently using Canon 60Ds with L series lenses.

    Awesome image Derek, wonderful angle used as usual, and that little winker on the top….I said winker! adds so much interest. So, haven’t heard from you in ages, where ya been??? Susan

  • Hahaa…thank you for your comment Susan, work has kept me very busy as of late :-(
    It is a good complaint but I have found myself going through older images easier than actually going out and taking new ones. Need to find the time to get out and shoot some more. Hope you are well.
    Also, with not being the group moderator anymore I don’t get to see as much new work that has come into the groups.
