I really wanted to comment on the lake/fishing pictures, but I keep coming back to the 'church-sans-sign' image. I am drawn to the sheer clarity and delineated lines and colours in this shot.

Beautiful photo and a firm LIKE from me!

Thats a heck of a roof Joy and clearly visible from space I'll be bound!

I know what you mean Jeff - under the strict control of Sam I got it to meet his standards (and am personally delighted by the results let me say!).

Thanks y'all for making me do this and enjoying with me, the results - Jethro

Actually Jethro, I'm just envious of your current location. Over here (at least in the bit I'm in) its grey, flat, persisting down, muddy underfoot and thoroughly unpleasant that I just want to go and sit in a pub beside a roaring fire.

However, we are not allowed to do this as we would exceed our alcohol quota for the week.

Some people however are taking incredible shots of lovely churches under impossibly blue skies.

Meanwhile, I'm stood in a muddy field with my Border Terrier cross (crossed with a little bastard) getting wetter.

Anyway , I'm over it now!!!!!!

Cheers from Cheshire

Your comment has moved me to tears Jeff !

I shared it with my wife and she is also now weeping into her stew and cauliflower dinner !

But its tears of laughter that we are suffering from rather than anything else!

In the same way that we seek respite from the chilly (not cold) winters that we suffer here so we drive the 9 hours to Orlando! You need a bolt-hole to dash off to at a moments notice when you cannot take any more of the mud and misery!

The Jethrohoyt Memorial Home for the Climatically Underprivileged could be just one man's dream but could indeed become a reality. Your mission (should you choose to accept this mission) is to find a suitable climatic haven for its location.

It needs to be within easy travel distance from the bogs of Cheshire, have no medical system (so no alcohol quota), immaculate weather and low property prices.

I think it used to be the south of Spain, but isn't that taken these days?

Keep me posted brother!

Yours sympathetically - Jethro

Very nice shot, excellent image! Like! Best regards from Athens. Nikos

I really like the vibrant colours in this one Jethro, it looks like I imagine rural East Coast America should? Like from me for this elegant little composition.

Best regards


David Brown Photogra… on January 12, 2012

Thank you Nikos

It doesn't get much more rural than this Pete - this is where the black-top ends and high ground clearance is necessary thereafter!

I did think about composition in this one, which is unusual for me, I must admit!


Cheers - Jethro

The sign is still there! I had to do a double take to see the parallax shift!

I like the photo without the sign; it is very colorful and more interesting. You must have taken the photo right at the sign. There you get great arm support and interesting photos to consider.


Jeff Annely on January 13, 2012

Hi Jethro!

I shall take on board the challenge to find the location for the Jethrohoyt Memorial Home for the Climatically Underprivileged. I'll have a good look around to find something something which is suitable and, perhaps, lay on some complimentary flights for interested parties to check out the facilities.

I assume that the budget is low and the expectations even lower?



David Brown Photogra… on January 15, 2012

Your not far off the mark Randy

I shall look forward to the results Jeff - as you say, the budget will be low.

Best wishes and many thanks both - Jethro

Beautiful Church. Best Regards linrich

David Brown Photogra… on January 23, 2012

Aye lad, but sorry about our perpetually blue sky Stuart (except for this weekend !!!). It'll be back into 15 deg C plus next week 'appen.

Thank you Linrich - it don't get more America than this I reckon.

Best wishes from North Carolina _ Jethro
