Hey! That was fun. :) Had been running from 7.100 to 7.300 most of the week then took a few hits the last couple of days. Was afraid to look at rollover. :P

Thanks for the kind comments and feedback. Very much appreciated!

I love the nice transition in the plains. Excellent capture. The sun rays (right word?) provides a plus to the picture. A fav.

I've added this picture to my favorites, and I like the title even more than the image. Please never show me the original :)

Something came to me when I saw this picture, and I noted it down.

Over the mountains,
across the foothills,
into the plains beyond ..

Flying uncertain,
composing idylls,
towards a morning born ..

Orange skies,
blue shadows,
and a golden sun ..

A painter's eyes,
few cupid's arrows,
and a yellow ribbon ?


I've also [url=http://poojac20.blogspot.com/2007/11/yellow-ribbon.html ]posted[/url] this on my blog. Hope nobody minds.
