Beautiful images Colleen. You are doing so wellto zoom in so much and still get them really sharp. V2 my favourite if I had to choose - I like the composition best and slight under exposure gives deep saturated colours.

Thank you for your comment about my knees....it is great to be able to walk properly again instead of almost shuffling.............the injections have worked very well.........it keeps the arthritis at bay...........GrinGrinGrinGrin

I use to to walk miles (hiking) and when you stop doing the walks frustration sets in, so now I can at least walk further without overdoing the walk..........I know when it's time to turn around and head home for a hot coffee............GrinGrinGrin
