Default 01 March 2013

Not able to visit my normal hard desert birding spots due to my busted rib, a friend dove to me at sunrise to a local mangrove beach, see location shot. The early morning sunlight was extremely bright and very harsh so I was having a problem to control my white balance. I also see once again Halos on some of my edits. Whatever, here's the results that I managed.

Hi Gary, stupidly when carry out a box of trash, I tripped and fell over hard and with my overweight went down too heavy I guess. Think it may have been an empty bottle of wine that fell onto, old bones don't heal easy they tell me. Theres has to be a moral there somewhere
