Hi Gilles! It is nice to make your acquaintance. You have a lovely gallery with lots of beautiful sunsets. I am glad you liked mine. I smiled to see your title African sunset in Quebec.

The sun is setting like a tired sailor after the storm, or like a tired sailor leaving the tavern!

I invite you to see my photo. This is a very rare and beautiful phenomenon of winter Russia. This is a Russian snow patterns. See this Photo!

All the best from Russia

or maybe the sun is setting like a giant carved piece of spam! It sure is annoying to open one's photo page and have a list of other people's photos used as self-promoting ads by a someone.

Valentine should probably read the policies against Spam in Comments.

Valentine that quote was a paraphrase of a song by Simon and Garfunkel....the sun is shining like a red rubber ball.

Snow snakes are cool. Thanks for the explanation of how they were formed.

Hi Kamalyn! It was a bit overdone wasn't it.

Hi jf, not just overdone, Valentine sent (and is still sending) that message repeatedly and that is spam.
