Today was a perfect day. The sky was blue and the temperature was comfortable. Besides the perfect Fall weather spending the day hiking with friends in the mountains really made for a great day.

Wanda was just crossing a little stream here when I snapped this photograph. Just across the stream was a rock wall reflecting nice soft light back at her. This spot almost looks more like a tropical jungle than a canyon high up in the Rockies.

Wanda, I think you should wear that shirt everyday!

I never really did like this image much, although it seemed to be popular. Go figure. I have what I call an "apprehensive smile" on My face. That's because there was a gentleman we had been hiking with, watching Bill take the picture! I had just glanced at him while trying to smile when Bill snapped the picture.I also get so nervous around other people when Bill is taking pictures of Me. The other thing I don't like about this image is that My boobs look WAYYYYYY bigger than they really are! Geez! I swore I would never wear that shirt again! (laffin)

Not many women look that good in fatigues!!

Lovely setting, lovely model and the light is beautifully warm and soft. And a lovely smile from Wanda, what more could we ask for? Had to give this a vote.

Yes, Bill. What I mean is if you could capture her holding the left strap on her pack instead of putting her hand there which seems too elegant for the outfit and the background, it would be perfect.

I appologize, I am just a bit too picky. But I am not even a good photographer.

I love your gallery, Bill and Wanda, It enlights my day. And you are such a perfect couple. It seems that there won't be any unhappiness between you two, all are happiness.

Very nice setting.. Jungle-like it is.. and the colors are rich and inviting.
Wm. Bates06-Sep-2004 02:49
I agree; but, when she hikes she holds the left strap on her pack.
Guest 06-Sep-2004 02:47
I don't quite like her left hand putting on her shouder. What do you think?
But other details are just perfect.

Wanda's giving Lara Croft a run for the money with this shot. =)
This does look very jungle-like.
