Gayle said...

I'm not sure where to start. You list photographer 4th in the things you do/are. You must be one amazing pilot, etc. because your photography is the best I've seen. Your photos speak. The colors are amazing...do you change them a lot with the computer? I'm definitely adding this blog to my favorites to see more! I can't imagine what the winning photograph was...your photo isn't just a photo...it is a story.

evlahos said...

You were a wonderful host today. I loved your words then I saw your photo. WOW! I logged in incorrectly so I had to do it twice
then I came to your blog. I only got to this photo and my jaw dropped open. Amazing colors! I can't wait to read and look backwards. Thanks for doing this.

All has been said already. A wonderful photo. It is also an amazingly emotional photo. A very difficult thing to achieve.

Your photo-shop techniques are amazing. Each of your photos on this page are a work of art!!!!

But the size of my volcano beats the size of yours I'm afraid (not in height but in the amt of ash pouring out of it!!!)!!!
