Thanks very much, Billy! I took another photo of that tree today, against a blue sky with puffy white clouds, and it doesn't look at all dramatic! The mood's all in the sky, isn't it? Thought you might be interested to see what the scenery is like when it's lit up enough to view it. This is taken from along the little side road where I live.
Very best wishes to you, Billy, and thanks again for coming to view some more photos. Have you changed your browser and getting on better now?
Sue - I cam back to this shot via Google Earth. I put in Gympie, QLD and it took me straight to the town. There are so many of your shots on display now!
I then scrolled west/left. You can't really miss your place, as it's the one with loads and loads of little blue squares all over it!
Yes, this is very good. Good composition, light and colors. Grat. Misi
Thank you so much, Misi,for taking the time to comment, it's much appreciated!
Very best wishes to you,
Erm yes, Tony, actually, I was going to ask you, is there anyway of looking at Google earth without all the little blue squares over my place popping up, as the coverage over my area has only just recently become clear enough to see anything, and I should quite like to see my place from the sky, but I can't, for all the blinking squares!! I was messing around with all the buttons I could find last time I went on Google, but I had no luck just getting rid of them temporarily. I don't mind them there long term, you see, but would like to see my place just once from the air.. :D
If anyone will know, you will!
how To Remove The Blue Squares
Sue, down the left-hand side of Google Earth is the Layers section.
Click the little plus+ sign next to Geographic Web
To remove the small blue squares, click on the tick next to Panoramio. This will make the tick go away.
To remove the large blue squares, click on Blue Square next to Places. This will make the square empty.
You is done!!
To put the square back, just tick the empty squares next to the names.

So, is time going so fast that you've decided to cross November with March, and so create a new month, Tony? I've had a look at some of your contest photos, but have to go out now, they were very good, I particularly liked the black and white court house one, back later to view the rest, sorry to keep ribbing you about your typo -month, you know me, I can't resist annoying anyone!
Did you click the link directly above (the glad I can help sue comment)?
Cheers, Tony in New Zealand
Bruce, thanks so much for your message, it's set me up for the day as I'm so glad that you found it, (I thought it had disappeared into the murky depths for good) and that you like the monochrome with a splash of the dying sun effect!
I'm extremely honoured that you've put this one in your favourites! Thank you, Bruce!
My very best wishes to you,
:) belo céu e contraste de cores..
Serenade to Sue Allen.
SOFTLY, O midnight Hours!
Move softly o'er the bowers
Where lies in happy sleep a girl so fair!
For ye have power, men say,
Our hearts in sleep to sway,
And cage cold fancies in a moonlight snare.
Round ivory neck and arm
Enclasp a separate charm;
Hang o'er her poised, but breathe nor sigh nor prayer:
Silently ye may smile,
But hold your breath the while,
And let the wind sweep back your cloudy hair!
Bend down your glittering urns,
Ere yet the dawn returns,
And star with dew the lawn her feet shall tread;
Upon the air rain balm,
Bid all the woods be calm,
Ambrosial dreams with healthful slumbers wed;
That so the Maiden may
With smiles your care repay,
When from her couch she lifts her golden head;
Waking with earliest birds,
Ere yet the misty herds
Leave warm 'mid the gray grass their dusky bed.
with respect to Aubrey De Vere. 1814–1902
Never have I gleaned,
From a place as yet unseen,
Such an ode to maidens far removed from me;
With their lips of ruby red,
And their tears as yet unshed,
In quantities abundant as the sea.
May I thank you dear Grey Eagle,
And offer you this sequel
To that wondrous poem by Monsieur de Vere,
That you hold in such regard,
Such a venerable bard
Is a joy to humble poets such as me!
Tis with warmth that I would send
You a wonderful weekend,
And hope that all the spring time flowers are peeking
From their verdant cape of green,
They appear as though a dream,
In that season so miraculous and fleeting.
I love that poem you've sent, Grey Eagle, it truly is from another age...so romantic in style and such an unusual pattern of lines.
Thank you so much!
