I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

So dreamy. The vignette works really well here.

To me this looks like a place in the story books that begin 'Long time ago ...'

Love this scene! The moss on the rocks, the light and textures are so outstanding. What a gorgeous place for these ducks to live...

Rune Kvisla

Well composed, magnificent colours!


Nice pond Dave. I like the balance of the image in general ans having the ducks to counter the stones all framed by the tree. Thanks for sharing!


Wow! That looks like something out of a fairy tale. There should be a young lady in a flowing white summer dress sitting barefoot on those steps.


OMG!! That's like a painting, gorgeous! What a beautiful atmosphere, like a picture from a fairy tale. Well done Dave!!

The vibrant green behind the swimming ducks is so eye-catching! A wonderful scene!


I claim this as my "spot". I can do a lot of deep thinking here - like what's it gonna be burgers or pizza for dinner :)


Dave, what a beautiful place. Wonderful photo!


I love this little pond! The steps down to the water make it unique!


This is gorgeous. Love the detail in it.


This looks so idyllic.


I love how you process your photos, so very colorful!!!

I love places like this -- and I wish I were as good as you are at capturing them!


One of those prints you would put in the den and enjoy its calming and soothing effects while you wind down the day...


I agree with Serline, should be hung as a print.
