Just a pretty sunrise over the Wasatch Mountains as I was headed to work.

Thanks, Marcello (I think) and Mesner.

Beautiful sky, and the silhouette looks so dense and inky black, perhaps you aren't mad after all, it was just the first things I saw in your gallery...:) This is a fantastic sky, well done, gorgeous white light!

cheers, Sue

Thank you, Sue. Don't let this simple trick of photography mislead you into thinking that I am any sort of not mad. Right before I took this picture, I painted all the mountains black because I didn't like the way they looked. Everybody else was mad at me.

But that's madness for you.

:O Like the ice queen turning every thing white, but the, impressed!

So is your name Tom, or was that a bit of a mistake? I was complemented on having a nice toaster once, and the comment was under a photo of a sunset...I didn't mind though, the intention was lovely, just a translator boo boo...

No, I've worked with Toms, I've known Toms, I've had friends named Tom. I am no Tom. (Apologies to Senator Lloyd Bentson.) I'm thinking that Marcello had a couple of windows open, and his message missed its proper destination. Makes me sad. Tom, no doubt, had a remarkable image, which moved Marcello very much indeed, and poor Tom will never know just how much that photo meant. Ah, the small ways in which our lives get side-tracked, and we never even know it. Is that too existential? I certainly hope so.

I could read your comments all day, your sense of humour cracks me up.
