    Awesome shot Derek, so thats where you get the great skyline…..I so gotta try this spot out…LOL! Love this shot!

  • Thanks Kathie. I have 3 locations around here with this similar view, the next one is in front of the trees on the left and the next is in front of the Rowers Club. F/11 and anywhere between 2 and 3 minutes works well here.

    What amazes me though is that I live on the coast, but it never looks as good through my eyes as it does through you lens. Great capture!!

  • I think my Photography has been improving over my 4 years at RedBubble, it certainly has branched out into a lot of different styles. I keep learning and practising and hopefully will improve more over the coming months.
