Dear Elena, this is a favorite for sure. You go for having fewer photos in your gallery to be certain that they are your best which is what I have done recently. I wish I could travel still but I am 62 and my best photography years are behind me, I'm afraid. The bulk of my photos were lost in a fire some years ago and I have no copies. Ah well. I admire your photos and envy your travels, but I remember mine very well and took pictures in many of these places you have in your gallery and they remain in my heart with great happiness. I believe I told you (didn't I?)that you have merited being worthy of being part of my favorite photographers. You are high up in that list, my dear. Keep it going, happy trails! Your friend, River

Dear River: Thank you for the warm kind words! I am very flattered to read it... I am sorry that you've lost your works in fire...Please believe me you are still very young, and still can do a lot of things if you believe in yourself. I have a friend who summited Mt Kilimanjaro for her 70th birthday, and did 200-mile Annaprurna Loop trekking in Nepal for her 72th birthday! She is my role model and her example make me very optimistic about the future... I do love both outdoors and photography... and hope to have more work ahead... If you ever be in Southern California... you are cordially invited for dinner in my home, just let me know! - Your friend Elena.

My dear friend, Elena. What a wonderful invitation!!! Thank you!!!! And thanks for the encouragement, too. You may notice that there have been radical changes to my gallery; where once there were a lot of photos, many I have taken out, also many of my favorite photos of others' works are missing. My own gallery is reduced to two pages of my favorites. I looked with fresh eyes today and yesterday and decided less is better. It now looks very barren of mutual favorite photographers, which is fine. I again would prefer less but spectacular photos. Someday this is going to "pay off"! LOL! Your good friend (and though my home is not fancy you also are most welcome to come here to stay and make some forays into our area) All my best to you, River

I had been here in the late 80's, and there is not a lot of changing, as far as I remember ;-)
Amazing shot!
