My Bubblesite showcases images in their categories.

I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    …my first thought is the incredible natural look of this…like I’m standing right in front of the scene instead of seeing it on a computer screen..amazing clarity, contrast and color….the perfect shot in my view !!!!!!!!
