8. Ahhh!
I needed that.
It's cold and snowy in NY tonight.
Next week I'll be up in Maine on my way to New Orleans.

Oh, I'm pleased these were just what you needed!

You folks up in the NE have had a fair amount of snow, already!

Safe travels, you hear?

18. Ooooosies, Miss Peg!
Great contrast in sparse lines across a fiery sky of the dancing billows above a mysteriously vague silhouette at the base. Great composition on that vertical shot. The bark maze at the left of the top shot is as compelling. Have you thought of doing a calendar as a fundraiser for your favorite charity? Perhaps pair some of the phrases or poetry you've written with images you've caught, I'd sure like to see such an expression of you.

20. Thank you, my dear Jotsy!
I appreciate your excellent critique...

I have thought of putting the pictures with the poetry...someday perhaps...

Thanks!

22. Great pictures, CP!. I live in The Valley and rushed up to the roof
to catch the beautiful sky tonight, but forgot my camera! Thankfully, you didn't. Do you know what caused the spectacular sunset tonight?

23. My dear Stardust!
Thanks! That's very kind of you...

You know, I have no idea what caused the lovely colors tonight...

The wind was from the west, so no Santa Ana winds to blow the smog out to sea, which is almost guaranteed to bring brilliant skies...

I can never predict.

I wish I could!
