7. Very, very difficult to make a decision. They're all awesome.
I picked "Through Many Seasons". Something about that photo grabbed me.

13. That's it exactly, each one quietly contemplative, set the tone.
Maybe that's why I did not turn the TV nor the radio this a.m.

Love the Quiet.

What happens if there is a tie?
or a bunch of ties?

27. I really like all of these
it's hard to say one is better than the rest! I picked "California Hailstorm" probably just b/c of the mood I'm in. What a creative way to say "GREEN!"

But then, that goes for all of them! Scenery and close-ups!

57. This is very very hard... the "sea of green" pic is a Monet painting,
breathtaking. . I would buy a print of this.

Ginko's composition is magnificently elegant. .I can TASTE the California Hail Storm . .

But for wind and moisture in my face, and in my nose and immersion in green, I have to go with
Hurricane Creek.

I would like a whole CALENDAR of "green"

Congratulations to you all, you are geniuses

78. Hurricane creek I found enticing however...
Edited on Tue Aug-25-09 07:10 PM by AsahinaKimi
It saddens me to know that most creeks, lakes, streams, rivers and even the oceans are so polluted now. Someone once told me the Mohawk River, in upstate New York used to contain Sturgeon, which produce fine caviar, but no longer. Though the river has been cleaned up, some what, the river will probably never contain sturgeon again.

I have seen beaches in Santa Barbara closed due to pollution danger. This is so very sad.
