Kamaly love your photo, but wondering if you have been eating too many "funny mushrooms" Dianne

new speed record for a comment , lol! Yes, the only way to get through the work day: shrink the city to be a tiny tiny thing viewed in the distance from the beach! My office is at the base of the pointy building third from the left in that it's nice to see it from a nice distance, with sand between the toes and the moon at my back. In comparison, last year's Harvest moon that you recently commented on was from directly across the street from the pointy building. Thanks! Hope you've had a good full moon there as well!

What a spread - It's flat as a pancake there, isn't it? It appears as though the cloud is hanging over the city and therefore your workplace, and you are basking in the golden glow of the setting sun, safe on your beach. Work and school always hung heavy on my shoulders like a dark cloud all sunday afternoon, but I'm lucky and get to stay home to look after the kids for now....boy, do I appreciate it, too!

Anyway, I digress .....beautiful photo, kamaly!

cheers, Sue

Thanks, sue and Don ! yes, work is always much nicer viewed from several miles away across a bay!

That is an extraordinary view over this city! Great contrast between the coloured sky and the illuminated city! YS

Greetings, Sabine

Thanks, Sabine and Dann ! Did you catch the little teeny jet taking off? (and Sabine - I apologize it took so long to reply! I thought I did - but that was last week, so it's probably still floating out there in the ether!)

Dann Cianca on September 25, 2008

Teeny, huh? Remote control?


kamalyn on September 26, 2008

no - a real one, just off in the distance there on the left

Nice picture

Well done, dear kamaly !

Dann Cianca on October 5, 2008

I'm still betting on remote control ... knowing how you like to stage your shots and all. ;)

Thanks very much, Arm 74 and jérôme bastianelli Cheers from Boston!

And Dann - you've found me out, in a way. It's really a little airplane sticker I put on my lens. Have you found the one in my new rainbow? :D and wooweeee I saw a weird cloud formation yesterday, but couldn't stop on the highway to get the shot. I'll have to try to describe it some time!
