This is a very special photagraph for me, Jean! I like the view on the mountains far a way, the shadows of the clouds on mountains and how the curve in the forground is leading into the picture!

Karl, Thank you for noticing! It is one of my favorites. I really liked the cloud shadows on the far mountains. When I look in your gallery, I see that you are great at getting those lead-ins in your photos. Your gallery is so wonderful!

Karl, I'm glad you like this one, you have to see the larger version of this one to fully appreciate the distant view. I love seeing photos on the computer screen, don't you? They always look so much more impressive than on paper! I'm so glad to have my photo in amongst your faves!

Your friend in USA,

Jean, I love the XXL-view of this picutre! Something in a hill in the middle of the photo is even looking like a little crater... Photos are much more impressive on the computer screen - they shine and they seem to be much more real this way. Nevertheless, we have some photos on the walls of our flat. : )

Your friend,

Karl

Karl, I don't remember where I saw it, but some movie or on a TV show, there was a wall made up of something like TV only it was like wall paper and there were photos that changed, still images. It was some science fiction thing, I love sci fi! When I saw it long many many years ago, I thought that would be a GREAT idea one day for when things reach some magic stage and I think that perhaps it could be done and maybe already being done in some rich place. I just love the way all the details show up so lifelike on the screens! In my memory the walls were like painted walls and sometimes were like wall paper and with framed photos on the walls but it all changed slowly or more frequently. It was inside a house as background, not a big part of the story. Wish I could recall what it was in.

Hi from rainy North Carolina, USA,

Jean, I, unfortunately, dont know the TV show either. But it must have been a very intersting film! I love sci fi very much, too, and the rooms with those wallpapers in the description of the film are exciting even in my imagination! By the way, I've recently seen something similar in the news on TV. They invented windows from glas which could be either transparent or show pictures as well. It's not quite like your wallpapaers, but I am sure that also such walls or even wallpapers are existing in reality!

For me "Blade runner" is such a film I often think about. The best thing in it was a little screen on a writing desk with a little photo, but you could zoom and zoom in it that not the smallest details got lost. And, of course, they found something very small and very far away in the film by zooming into the photo. Do you know this film by accident?

Hi from Land Brandenburg in uncertain weather (because it is dark...) : )

Karl, I am blessed with a poor memory. When I read a good book, I know that I can put it on my special book shelf for really good reading and in a few years, I can take it down and have a nearly new book to read that I know for sure that I will like! It has been years since I have seen Blade Runner but as I recall it was really good. I need to watch it again!

Now it is dark here too. The wind is blowing and the forecasters are saying the rains will come at any moment. We really need the rain. The drought has been for 2 years. Our rainfall levels are much below normal. So even though the dark dreary days reak havoc on my brain, I will like to get the rain. And I look forward to Spring and the wild flowers.

Jean

PS- did you watch Star Trek?

KKT on December 11, 2008

Jean, that's funny, with your book shelf! I should make something similar for myself! I'm reading so many books that I surely don't remember what was in them after a certain time later! : )

Unfortunately we hadn't any snow by now here. It's all went south... It's good that you have rain when you need it. I think, we have far to much rain here. So take some little rain from us, if you want! : ) But if you will get some snow, please, take some more photos for me that I can have a little glance on them! : )

I loved watching "Star Trek", but not too fanatically. Some films were very fascinating! I know the old seria with Spock and Kirk (but it was difficult to see them in East Germany) and the later ones with "Jean-Luc Picard". But then I got a little bit confused with "Deep Space Nine" and the other serias... : )

Karl, Snow might come again here this weekend! Hope you get some soon. I'll be waiting to see your new photos too.
