  2. This is so pretty and an excellent photograph.. how did you do this?? And where did you get that coin.. there’s a story there I think:)

      I pointed my camera, turned off the flash (because it was in a museum), and pushed the clicker button. 😀 I’m not very high-tech.

      The coin was lit the way you see it so I can’t claim any credit. The coins are in Denmark, where ships passing through the sound had to pay a tax in gold coin or they weren’t allowed to continue their voyage to the Atlantic. That tax lasted for several hundred years until the late 1700s.

      1. I love when that happens:) It’s a great shot!
