..minus the 40mph crosswind and the sun burn I did not even know I got because of the wind, I assume I will be screaming all night… BUT finally getting out to take some more photos was a great change of pace… This is one of the shots from today.. just the start of the over 1200 images I shot today to try to make up for the months of not shooting…

Not as cool as the stuff +Dale Jackson does with pens and pencils, but was going for something different…. guess I will see how that works out with the masses here…
