I love the skewed perspective in this image, Carolyn (huge dog, tiny sun) and how you used Rocky to frame the sunset, looks like the beginning of a great partnership!! He's definitely earned a commission on this shot! #409453

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


I was laying flat on my face trying to get some rocks in my sunset shot, and Rocky (Bob's daddy ) kept getting in my way, so as I was trying to shove him out of the way, I noticed that this might make a pretty good shot. So here it is.
