Stunning, Beautiful, Amazing. Do you do any enhancements or edits on the computer? Those are wondeful, you certainly are talented.

Thank you! I do the occasional edit,but the majority are "natural".
I use a Canon Powershot SX40 HS camera,and it has many different settings that allow for great photography and really unique shots! I often have my camera with me where ever I go,and am always on the lookout for a different angle or cool lighting,that kind of thing.And some times I get lucky.:)

Well it looks to me like you are a very lucky person then because every one of these shots are beautiful. I suspect you have hundreds more as well. You should be quite proud of yourself. It takes an artistic eye to see the picture in the first place and often patience that many folks don't have.

Ah yes,lots of patience! I often end up taking dozens of photos of the same thing,just to get one that's good.Or sit somewhere for 1/2 hour waiting for the sun to get to just the right position.. It usually pays off though. :)

I took a photography class in college and I loved doing the road trips with a friend of mine while doing out "homework projects" but it was the adventure I enjoyed. I never had the patience to sit around waiting for light to change. I wish I did. I have managed some nice photos but truth be told, I have forgotten 98% of what I was taught. Now, I usually use "point and shoot" and 90% miss shots because I don't even have my camera with me. It is too heavy. I think I need to get a small one that fits in my pocket. I am currently using a Canon EOS 30D. That is too heavy for me to carry all around so I leave it at home in the bag to collect dust. Ha ha

I would love to see more of your shots if you wish to share.

I haven't taken any classes,everything I know is self taught and involves alot of trial and error,lol. I would like to take some training sometime though,as I know I could do alot more with my camera if I understood and knew more.. But I have fun anyway. :)
I'll post some more pics in a jiffy,glad you're enjoying them!
