How will I ever get anyone to take me seriously if I keep doing silly things like this?

Very nice photo though! I guess that's why we put up with your sillyness. Great color and exposure!

Thank you, Spence. You're most kind, and it's fun to add the touch of fun with our shots, too.

Haha! The artiste at work ;) Nice positioning near a golden ratio point too.

No artiste am I, Brian, but thanks for the kindness. That spot was carefully chosen by a panel of experts I keep on retainer for consultation.

Very nice!

It's probably the abandoned vase after somebody released the genie. Depending on his wishes you'll find maybe some traces of a Mercedes or a Porsche nearby ...
But nice sunset anyway - already at 18:47 in the evening!

I actually like the shot Phil. To me it adds something to the feeling of solitude the image conveys. Nice one. :)

Best regards, Tom

Thank you muchly, Tery.

Darn it. I didn't even think to look around for booty with which to abscond, polytropos. I'll have to go back and see if it's still lurking anywhere. But I'm glad you liked the shot. Yes, the days keep getting longer for a bit.

Thank you very much, Tom. I do appreciate the good review very much!

Did you get a message in a bottle? Very nice add-on to this beautiful sunset photo! Cheers, Ippa :)

The "message" obviously has flown in somebody's throat, I guess, Ritva. Maybe even in one only gulp, which explains the existence of the bottle on a such unusual place. ;-)

Hi there, Ippa. No, I didn't think to leave a message in the bottle. Imagine how confused folks will be when they find it empty. More mysteries! But then again, polytropos may have figured it all out, so we'll have to ask him for further developments. Thank you both for stopping by and leaving the nice comments.

Great idea, great capture......

Feng shui?

Has this lake always been salt, not1word, or did it turn salt after you moved to this place?

©polytropos on April 28, 2010

Well, if there would be a coherency, Norrel, don't you think the lake wouldn't rather be sour?

No mere sunsets for you. You must have thought of this one after telling Who to clean up his sunset shots before he shot;))

Seriously a great series and this one deserves a BO!

To add a focal point ;D

Me? Nope... Hehehe... Nice place!

Really enjoying your new uploads and the funny comments. I suppose it is not a vase from the 12th C. :-) nik
