    Thank you for the kind words and the welcome - I appreciate that.
    This was printed large on Kodak Endura Metallic paper which has a pearlescent silver look in the whites. The impact of that particular paper is what really makes this image for me.

    Hello, fellow Texan :)

    The only criticism of this image I have is the tiny wing (I think) frame right that just barely sticks into the image. I'm kicking myself for noticing it but once I did, I can't stop being drawn to it. It's the only thing in the image that isn't identifiable by the pats in the image itself. How minor is that and how pathetic am I?!?

    Anyway, it's gorgeous. Stunning. Where was it taken?

    Very striking. I think "breathtaking" is overused, but it's definitely that!

    Interesting, very nice choice of F stop. To me the mountain feels like its 100 miles away, which I thought it was.. until you told me the F stop :)

    So yeah pretty much what that blabber equates to is...

    Cool! Good work!

    Good catch! It's part of a light/antenna pole. This is actually a different crop than the print (I had to go back and look)

    This was shot in the harbor at Morro Bay, CA where I lived until I moved to Bastrop a few months ago. Morro Rock is just under 600' high and sits at the harbor entrance.

    I'm guessing it's about 1/2 mile, but it very obviously stands out as a local landmark. I have a whole series of images of Morro Rock because it is the local landmark and that that's what sold prints to tourists. This was probably in the top ten sellers in the gallery.

    Thank you again for your supportive comments
