Ah.....don't worry. Your work is appreciated. We are all just waiting for that Pulitzer winning tornado shot you're going to get.



Dann Cianca on December 20, 2007

Ahem ... could be waiting a while for that one. Haha.

Another beautiful photo of the mountains Rich -- I like the rainbow effect -- all the best for the new year.

It is a joy having both you and Dann (The PhotoDumper) around on Panoramio.

Happy Trails.

Rich, please allow me to take a moment and waste space on your page to let Bruce know that I hath dumped more photos.


Richard Ryer on December 21, 2007

Greetings Bruce And Dann, Thanks for visiting the Sun Dog and commenting.

Bruce - Thanks for the wonderful comments. The sun dog is the first I ever recall seeing and it was such a surprise. It was all I could do to get the car stopped and parked and jump out to start taking pictures. I didn't want this one to get away. Luckily it lasted a long time. Oh, see Dann's message above. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dann - We could probably settle for a big dust devil. Just paste it into one of your clouds, photoshop up some colors and there you go. Just a thought.

Merry Christmas to all.

Greetings Eva, Thank you for visiting the top of Fremont Pass in Colorado and commenting on the early morning rainbow. I am told this is a Sun Dog, although beautiful is also great description when it just appears in the sky while driving around a corner. I am glad you liked it.

Greetings Matteo, I learned a new word for this phenomenon, parhelion, from the snow coach driver in Yellowstone yesterday. I am glad you like it.
