Hey Bobby. Is it the time of the year when you will be doing some more of these pictures of lighting that present both amazing beauty and at the same time can make even the toughest of men jump when they hit earth. This is so masterful. The timing, the beauty of the lighting, colors and amazing sharp details. Love when you do these my friend.
Have a great weekend, enjoy, be safe. #10669291
