I visited the location at #3 twice and found similar lighting conditions in both visits. The best light came at about 3pm when the angle of the sun was about right to have its light penetrating through the forest trees. Timing is prime in shooting.

By the way, this shot was taken on 1/1/09.

Thanks for viewing and giving comments.

I like the one you mentioned very much, too. My wife said that it was like a piece of cracked tempered glass. Is spring in town out your side? Pete
