See no snow and you can go all over the place. I like that a lot. How fun. Wish I could have been there with all of you.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you both. :)

Good for you, Tor. A new lens is like a new toy for us photographers. You'll have many happy pictures to come, I know! :)

Vi älskar att gå på fotopromenader som den du hae här, så tack för den! En hel del intressant på vägen verkligen! Skrattade lite åt rattlesnakes trots det allvarliga - och Viking-skylten. Corvetten är bara för frestande.... Den sista bilden med.... ah så jag önskar att jag var med och gjorde DET strecket!!!!

Hoppas din förkylning är borta nu. Sköt om er!

Hoppsan upptäckte nu att jag skrivit på svenska - bara för att jag är så inne i Himmelsk foto meme... hi hi....
