A Bagpiper Sunset - Skywatch Friday


[Click It To Big It]

This is John McDonald, Bagpiper Extraodinaire, playing at sunset this evening, as he does every evening, on the 10th Tee of the International Course at the Champions Gate Golf Club. Tune in the next few days to see more of the shots I was able to take.

A big 'thank you' to Alan Findlay, General Manager of the Champions Gate Golf Club, for inviting me over to see John play at sunset. As I mentioned, John plays every evening, and can be seen from the Veranda at the Clubhouse.

This is just incredible. So much feeling in this shot... just phenomenal. And I don't even like bagpipes! But even I would be willing to listen just to witness this.

Magnificent!

How cool is that! Just beautiful.

This photograph has all the qualities of excellence...the silhouetted bagpiper, the sky, the water...terrific.

But no, you don't need video for sound.

Wren said...

Now that's something I've not seen in a skywatch before: Bagpipes. Even without the pipes, it would be a great photo.
