I like this one very much too, Jim. Stark! Cold! Even the look of the sun seems to make it colder!

Regards, Brian.

First, I humbly apologise for this very late response..(single bloke syndrome)

Amelia Royan~~~~Hi there! Amelia ;>) Sun??? I think we have entered into a nuclear winter here, low cloud, low temps and constant for the tree, I must have accidently deleted it...Hmmm! now you've got me wondering I losing it now ;>) As for the minor specks, I think you are right..The Pentax comes with a brilliant feature which scans the sensor for dust/fluff and displays the exact location of it on my LCD monitor...Dust removal is an automatic event at start up and can be overridden for instant cleaning at any time..

Hi Jim. A recent scientific discovery has shown, if you stare at the sun for long enough, it could damage your eyes! Especially page three!

What a perfect shot dear Jim to come and wish for you A most Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with all the things that make you happy and that the New Year will be filled with many blessings. I looked through your "winter" tag to find a shot I wanted to use to wish you a Merry Christmas. you have so many great captures, but I chose this beauty to send my greetings. I hope this finds you well and also to let you know I have missed you!! Take care of yourself...

Hugs and Chrismtas Blessings (I so appreciated your PM) Sarah

Anupam Mukherjee, A warm welcome to my "cool" picture :) I appreciate your nice comment, thank you!

佐々木勝夫~~~Greetings and thank you for your kind appraisal :)

Sarah O~~~~Hello Sarah, dearest friend..I must confess that this had slipped through the net and somehow I had missed it...but I'm glad you brought my attention to it.. Your heart-warming message means a lot to me and I hope you will forgive my over-sight! I might, one day, catch up with the incoming mail. Another major drawback is my typing which is hopeless Sarah..thank goodness the auto response flags up my spelling mistakes immediately..

Kind regards to you all


Sarah O on December 27, 2012

GOOD! you have found it dear Jim :)) Yes, that spelling assistance is great isn't it, and still, I make so many mistakes.:)) Never mind the mistakes, Jim, just let me hear from you. You are missed when away for too long:) Hugs and OH! Happy New Year, my friend.. Sarah
