Not at all Jim, there has been so much 'traffic' lately, it's almost impossible to catch every message.

Glad you are getting back to normal and like you wondering when all this rain will end!!

Have a great week,

Yeah Sean, it sure is busy.

The whole of Northern Europe seems to be having the same freakish weather. Perhaps more of us are staying in and posting mail.

Its been 3 weeks almost since returning from Norway and the sea conditions here have been atrocious.

I dont hear the farmers complaining, everything must be growing well.

Best wishes.

I absolutely love this photo, Jim! It has the'WOW' factor for me. You know when you flick the button and the screen loads up and there is a magical scene....rippled water, rippled sky,with supple beauty slipping by........ dappled cool beneath the skin of liquid, still and cool within.....

Well, that's what pops into my head when I look at this beautiful scene. Thanks so much for posting it, Jim, Kind regards, Sue

Hello Sue, greetings and welcome.

You have a nice way with words and I am grateful for your visit and interesting feedback.

It is so much easier to respond when visitors leave interesting, amusing and thoughtful reflection on what they feel here when visiting my gallery, just as you have done. I can see that you draw your inspiration from having a good imagination. I too like to picture a scene and create an image of how it must feel and sound. To imagine the crash of surf on the shore, the rush of shingle in a receeding wave, the harsh call of the soaring gulls and the salty taste of the sea-breeze on my lips. --It is these emotions from which I draw my inspiration. So it would seem Sue, from your own observations above, that we share a love for the same things. I am grateful for this opportunity to share these thoughts and feelings with you. It creates a better understanding and a need to discover even more about new friends. You took the time to stay a while on your journey, I appreciate that. Thankyou....Jim

eugenevs~~~That is an interesting observation you make just there Eugene..I had not realised how the past events had affected my desire to leave comments of much worth! Thankfully, the days of contest spam are over and the only motive for those who are kind enough to leave comment is one of genuine interest in my photos, and that is a good thing!

Denise Gregory~~~You are probably wondering what I am rambling on about Denise..As a new-comer, your sensibilities were not offended by the antics of contest spammers..Thank god, it seems now to have been eradicated!

More importantly, your lovely compliment is gratefully received!

Kind regards to you both
