Hello Amelia!!

I can't get over the awesomeness of this photo! It is absolutely lovely! The colors are wonderful and the composure is perfect!

Excellent work here!

Greetings from Georgia,


Amelia Royan on October 29, 2009

Why thank you Kyle ... thank you for your wonderful words here - so full of praise, so am I forgiven for the friendly sarcasm? Maybe not yet by Mary Alice ;-)

When I read the word Georgia, a certain song comes to my mind ;-)

Greetings, Amelia

Kyle Wolff on October 29, 2009

Yes, you are forgiven for the friendly sarcasm :)))

but we'll have to wait and see what Mary Alice says ;-)

I bet the song you are thinking of is "Georgia on My Mind" ?



Amelia Royan on October 29, 2009

Exactly - and I'm humming it now :))

Goodnight! ;-)

This is beautiful. So rich and warm. Well done.

Best regards from Virginia, Tom

P.S. I appreciate the confirmation on Bruce's Hawkweed. :)

Amelia Royan on October 29, 2009

Thanks for the visit Tom, it's much appreciated! There are certainly some beautiful views to be had here in south west Norway :))

Warm regards to Virginia, Amelia

wow Amelia my dear!! These mighty Aspen trees shined up for partying get an instant Y* and on top BO Varme hilsner, Peter

Amelia Royan on November 1, 2009

Good morning Peter, I hope the weather in Denmark is a bit better than the weather here in the UK :)))

Well this is praise indeed! Thank you my friend. I wonder if you have looked at the marvellous details on the GE map ;-)

Mange hilsner, Amelia

well Grey in Grey here too :( 'your' rain will come in here this evening--at least it will not spoil the day :)

Unfortunately the GE-map of this area is very blurred when I look at it here..?

Bedste hilsner, Peter

Much of Norway is like this on GE - it is so difficult to place a photo, even in parts of Stavanger!

Amelia: Wish for a GPS for Christmas, and use Microsoft Pro Photo Tools (freeware) to merge your GPS track and your photo's. It's super easy and the geotagging is done automatical in Panoramio. I love it!


Amelia Royan on November 1, 2009

Well MIKojan, sometimes I read comments and they sound like "double dutch" ... I must learn more about this system. I have already written to Santa in Lapland for a telephoto lens ... he may not be so generous! Thank you for this advice - it certainly would help with the positioning :))

Hilsen, Amelia

This is a lovely tree shot Amelia, nice composition and colouring. I seem to have a thing about trees. Well seen and captured!

Suzi in Oregon on November 9, 2009

Yes, indeed, dear Amelia - I must echo Pieter's sentiment - this image is beautiful and I wish I had taken it! Y* well deserved :O)
