    Some of your photos just make my eyes sting a little... combo of beauty, timing, "wow" factor, and... okay, I'll admit it... envy. Not the kind that will get me in trouble above :-), just the kind that makes me sigh and say under my breath, "Someday, I'll get a timeless shot like THAT." (With my own stamp to it, mind you.) I am certainly glad I wandered across your photostream today. I will be back again and again, I am sure. Another unforgettable (and FAV) capture! (Bonus: I learned something very useful in looking and reading, too!)

    Pretty cool shot.
    Many years ago, I used to live about 1/2 mile from the bridge, right on Mantoloking Rd., on the side away from the ocean. I don't suppose much is the same anymore. I think my mom told me they even have a new bridge back there now. Did lots of crabbing around that area back then. Used to be the Crab Shack up the road and I lived across the street from a white non working service station.
    Seems like forever.

    Isn't it a bit dangerous by the water in a lightening storm? Yikes! This is amazing!!!

    Hi, im an Admin for `Howards Gallery` and would be very honoured if you would consider posting your stunning photo into the Gallery.
    This Gallery is so different than anything flickr has done before, as it is an easy place to belong to and participate, yet you have to have exemplary work to be invited here, and it is my opinion that this wonderful piece here belongs with us ……. I hope you will post this picture of yours with pride into the Gallery..…and we look forward to seeing more of your talent in the future......Kind regards..Caz (A)
