Nice view, specially because of brume! :)

Thank you, Dann, steandeb, and Ainars.

And steandeb, the formula is on the Forum but it's simple, so there's no need to go there. Here is what I did for this one:

The one difference is that right now I put a space between the end bracket and the beginning parenthesis--so that my demonstration wouldn't turn into a link! Actually the two have to go one immediately after the other like this: ](

Hope that's clear enough!

Oh, THAT's how you do that! I read it in the help file, but still didn't get it! Thanks Marilyn, I have been wanting to know that, and thanks Steandeb for asking!

Another beautiful New Zealand photo! The light and shadow show the texture of the rocks perfectly. A very lovely afternoon scene!

I was wondering about the little speck on the's a speedboat! You were high up indeed to take this, Marilyn.

Cheers, Ryan

I believe it in that manner we may see special colours because of the humid air.Very beautiful photo, Marylin !Greetings, Tamás

Thanks, Alex, Ryan, and Tamás. Yes, there is an aerial gondola ride up a mountain, with adventure activities at the top. (We watched bungee jumping--but definitely did not try it!) Our interest was the wonderful view; this one that I think you've seen is a shot from the same platform in a different direction. A different mood! Cheers, Marilyn

Mountains and river. I like it. Very nice view. Thank you, Marilyn.

Marilyn Whiteley on October 21, 2007

Thank you, Alexey. You have some very nice views in your collection!

Dear Marilyn,

Queenstown certainly deserves its reputations for majesty and adventure. Here it seems you may have some of the last snow of the season on the peaks, on our recent visit we arrived in a storm that put the first dusting on the peaks for this season.

Warmest regards,
