Hallo Luud Den Baumstumpf hast Du sehr gut in Scene gesetzt und dazu noch die tollen Farben. Beim Thumbnail dachte ich erst es wäre irgendwo im Westen den USA...

Beste Grüße jeybee

As the sunset on 2008, Luud produced another masterpiece and yet another! Congratulations, Master Luud. Thank so very much for the honour of a dedication.

A great shot Luud, congratulations! It looks like a driftwood, but as I see it's in some type of desert - isn't it?

Cheers, Atti.

Many thanks to all my friends for the kind comments, It's always nice for me and I hope also for other users to discover something (new) in the world of photography; Frank , Jurgis , Jean , Oron , Luis , Jeybee , Ianthanks for this beautiful link , Abraxas and Atti thank you and nice to hear from you again, these are little peaces 1km2 of dusting/drifting sands in the area we live. They are caused by excavations in the past.

Greetings Luud
