    Nice series, Don, topped off by that last one....a spectacular image.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    I agree with Tom and Tax on the last one. Nice.

    Thanks, Cristobal.

    Processing the last one was a challenge. It's a blend of three exposures. I don't like what HDR software does to the sun in shots like this so I blended them in Photoshop using luminosity masks.

    I learned one trick to use when the sun is in the shot from a book by Mark Muench. You take an exposure with a finger blocking the sun. Doing that increases the contrast in the rest of the shot. It had been so long since I took a shot like this that I forgot to do it here, alas.

    Very nice work Don.

    Love the leading lines and composition in the last image.

    Your processing skills are showcased in the final image. Very nicely shot and presented. IMHO.
