If you like good photography, I'll post again here. Or, share your own.

Sorry they came up so large. I resized them down two times. Will try to make it better next time.

Nice photos. :thumbsup:

I like the ocean and beaches, my favorite is the Pacific ocean (California side that is). Over there on the West coast of Florida you get some nice sunsets too, I see. Or rather, I guess I should say the "South" coast of Florida?

Lovely! I especially like the way you've captured the colours. I usually take binoculars when walking by the sea, but have been wondering about getting another camera.

Not near your quality, but here's a cool one I took of Lake Michigan. I thought it was beautiful how the sun was shining through like a spotlight.

The furniture may be exquisite,
And the bars of solid gold,
But once the bird realizes that the cage is a cage,
It finds within that cage
No joy

Spotlight pics are cool. Love it when I can get that effect. Usually, they happen when the sun is high, so not much color happens. Color happens best when the sun is low.
David--yeah, I'm on the coast of Florida so near the South. Don't like the culture here, but the water is unique and the light can be sublime. That's why I put up with it, instead of moving back to California.
Here's my latest.

Fantastic! :) I like photography too, I usually shot pictures in the forest. Low quality but maybe worth sharing.

I don't know how to attach a picture. O. o

Go to pic resize, then choose 800 pixels. Make it 75 kb. It will have to be put on your hard drive, but then you can select it out, and share.
That is how I did it, but maybe there is a better way.

Ther is nothing beautiful about those bastards!
Just wait until they create a tsunami or a storm.

Full moon in eastern Europe, in the forest. It was very cold. : )

Wanted my bird friend to look like she is walking on the sky.
Altered the colors a bit, more or less magenta, to give that feel. Orange on the horizon was due to a forest fire.
I like this one, think it has a thoughtful mood.

The dark strip of cloud over the horizon also looks like a huge swooping bird. And I especially like the way you've caught that solitary wave in the middle. Very nice.
