and Happy New Year to y'all as well!!!

thanks for all the kind comments and to our ever hardworking Approvers for the recognition..I was so excited to see this rare(for me) phenom, BUT frustrated that it was hidden beyond the snowy trees..I knew I wouldn't have time to go to the upper field to get a clear view..I'm very glad that is was much more visible to the camera lens and once I downloaded onto my computer screen! be safe and well in 2014!!

About suzi46


Going from the Mt Washington Valley region of Maine/NH, all the way down to the "Horse Capital of the World, Marion County" in Central Florida in April 2014, was quite a change to say the least! Photo ops, in a totally new and intriguing area of this very large and varied state, are slowly presenting themselves to me as I adjust to this brand new environment and much warmer weather!! I look forward to this new photographic chapter of my life!
