    I love this photo more each time I see it, Scott! Beautiful capture!

  • And to think I almost missed it – I took a second look and started doing different exposures due to going from stark shade into the bright sunlight. I miss our foray’s with our cameras. When things settle down on the Belfrage front lets head out — Only the last weekend of July my Daughter Renee and granddaughter Madison (the one you met) are getting married.
