That is very pretty! I live in south Florida, and we do not have snow or mountains here.

breathtaking for sure!!!

I love it..

Tora - my new camera is a pricey toy! It's a Cannon G7, basically the best on the market. I got it from a 1 day only online web sale. $200 off normal list price!

So far I like it, but if you email me, we can chat more about the best point and shoots.

I've never seen a volcano before! It is so magnificent. Is it active?

Great Picture, TorAa...I am unfamiliar with this place....What was the subject of this Worless Wednesday???

Thanks for your wonderful comment, my dear...I have such a good time with all the Hummingbird pictures...and I particularly LOVE the very colorful Tail Feathers...Who Knew!

It's a pretty volcano, even though it's probably dangerous.

Bolivia? Yep, it's probably sitting on the rim of a live volcano!
