@MARIANA: Little bit of heaven every morning ... well, it's just a great way to start the day. :)

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Wow, that is just amazing. Catching the light from the side like this in the lower branches of the trees and over the tips of the grasses is just excellent! The soft hazy atmosphere in your beautiful composition is just wonderful.

@Bettina: Thanks, Bettina.

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Yes indeed - this IS a fantastic photo as stated above. How in the world did you catch the light on the bushes and on the field as well??? Great stuff Larry

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks, Denny. Sun was just out of frame to the upper left. A straight exposure produced a tremendous amount of flare in the lower right. So, a second exposure was made with my hand in frame, blocking out the upper left which eliminated the flare. The 'flare free' lower right of this second exposure was blended with the first during processing.

DarkElf from Perth, Australia

excellent light and composition! love the dreamy effect and the resulting mood and the dirt road leads in very well!

I so much admire your photography....unbelievably talented...
I find you to be the most talented photographer that I came across this site, so far...
