Bravo !
Je n'ai jamais vu de photo de lenticulaire aussi pure que celle-ci !
Pour ceux qui ne le savent pas, les lenticulaires c'est aussi le rve des pratiquants du vol voile (vol en planeur) : ce sont les matrialisations de fortes ascendances dues des phnomnes ondulatoires ; en effet le long de leur bord d'attaque (ct vent), l'air monte souvent plus vite que n'importe quel ascenseur (20 km/h est une moyenne), jusqu' des altitudes trs leves (gnralement de 5000 10000 mtres).
A dfaut d'avoir pu surfer le long du nuage de Dominique, je me contente aujourd'hui d'en rver en surfant sur Trekearth !

Default To RGatward: You got it...

exactly Richard. When I viewed the image with the three standing men included it was a pretty image but without any tension and with no obvious focus except perhaps the water in the background. Cropping like this gives me an obvious and somewhat interesting focus. It also brings the fishing rod in the foreground into greater prominence, which for an image about fishing, is not a bad idea. Glad you liked it and thanks for your observations.

I was actually pulling everyone's leg about the two hundred year old something or other. You are definitely correct that options are minimal, like ONE building that old within a reasonable driving distance. But inspiration came in the recollection that Spanish missions, including a number around the Bay, were built a long time ago. My research quickly helped me identify Mission Dolores in San Francisco and I got my shot over the weekend. I posted it today to finish the Hunt. It has been fun, but I'm definitely ready for other work that has occupied me at the same time as I've pursued the hunt, my Homage to Olli, for example. I have more shots of industrial parks and railroad yards than I know what to do with... ;-)

That's obviously not true and you'll begin seeing those shots as well as some at the edge of San Francisco Bay taken over the last few weeks. Thanks again Richard.
