Micki, what a treat it must be to live out in the "sticks" and on a pennisula to boot! I guess that it must be inconvenient sometimes, but you sure make it look inviting.

I love the shots of the piers.

The two last shots are exceptional. Reflections on water are mesmerizing and the slow shutter speeds have given that lovely smooth effect to the water.

Love 'em, too. I'm partial to the waterfront photo - nice job!

Micki. Lovely reflection shots and the subdued colours in the last two really caught my eye. Those last two are so clear and crisp also. It would be great to clean that old piece of machinery of plant growth to really see what it really looks like. Seems to me you had a lovely hour or two wandering around. Cheers. Chris

I love reflections on water. #3,4,5 are all great images, must have been quite an evening during the drive.

Something for everyone today - I especially enjoy the first shot, fascinated with how nature overtakes all given enough time. I keep looking for a 'Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.' logo somewhere on that old boat, too :-)

The reflections, I noticed they are intense. Your choice of narrower aperture and slower shutter speed perhaps? I like it, perfect like a painting. Perhaps because of the water. Intriguing. Good scenery shots.
