Crossing into the future...

Footbridge across the river. Still taking the journey just one step at a time.


Thank you if you stopped to look, or leave a comment. Am humbled when you choose a photo as a FAV. Am spending my time viewing other photos and making comments, but will answer any questions left here. Peace out, Sheila

Thanks for the FAV's. Made the PP 2/26/2012
Top 5 for Theme-balance (well now that's a first for me)
Top 20 for Week 93 - a week of firsts.
Very cool reflection! I always wanted to attempt one of these shots. Your shot looks amazing :)

Magical! Like the view you captured.

this is a superb shot - love the subdued colours in the background with the vibrant ones in the ball. really cool focus. Re your question over HDR, I bracket my photos on auto in the camera (never on manual) and I edit on Photomatix. Majority of my shots have some level of HDR in them!

Oh WOW! Incredible picture. Where did you get that magical glass ball?
posted February 25th, 2012  
@josiehartley It is a clear quartz crystal ball 80 mm. I bought it on eEbay from a vendor out of China. Took a couple of weeks to arrive, but arrived in great shape I've been happy with its clarity. It is fun to play with.
