My “post & run” image for the day! :)

Got to get out of here and do some shooting, so thought before I head out that I would post a quick shot of one of my favorites, and a favorite method that I enjoy using.

Just get the lens practically on the ground in some thick grasses, crawl around looking for compositions, shoot wide open, shoot right through the existing foliage for that soft effect, … and have some fun!

Gotta go, ……. so everyone take care!
