Photo Walk Favorite

A few friends and I went on a photo walk this morning and, luckily, managed to avoid the rain.  However, what had fallen earlier created some beautiful photo opportunities.  I couldn't wait to get home and pull this web up on my computer screen to see it BIG.    To quote Karl, who was learning …
