My 200th image approved. Another milestone achievement, I now have 200 approved images online.

Once in a while, when the opportunity arises, put something Out of this World onto your portfolio, and you may be rewarded for it!When the alien looking Gardens by the Bay was released to the public in Singapore, I know I had to add images of the attraction to my portfolio. There is an out-of-this-world feel about the place, especially with the Super Tree Grove.Getting to the Grove requires the visitor to cross the bridge across the Dragonfly Lake.On the bridge, the ardent photographer will... continue reading
