Hi Richard

I did enjoy visiting your pics, as I hope you took the time to look at some of mine (48 pages is far too many to look through at one sittting I think!).

This is one of my favourites of yours, and I have added it as such. I love when you get light on a near object and dark clouds behind. It's just such a dramatic scene.

Anyway, one to look at others, and get on with other chores. ;)

Perfect time of day for this Photo, Richard. Adds lots of drama!

Richard Ryer on August 3, 2007

Greetings Kensa, Thanks for visiting my collection and commenting on the VLA. We got there in the late afternoon and stayed until sunset. It was spectacular out there and there were only a couple of other people on site at the time. Very cool.

Maravillosa captura.

Greetings Wilber, Thank you for visiting the Very Large Array in New Mexico. This is a very interesting radio telescope used to map the universe. I think they listen for ET sometimes to call home. Happy New Years.

Fascinating picture Rich, full of atmosphere! Greetings from Germany, Carla

Richard Ryer on October 26, 2008

Greetings Carla, Thanks for visiting and commenting. I am glad you like the VLA. The radio telescopes seem so out of place in this high mountain valley, but the do make a great contrast with their environment. When there are clouds the pictures you can take are spectacular. What is fun is to watch them move, all 29 at the same time. It is very impressive. Thanks again for visiting.

HELLO Is there anyone out there?????

Richard Ryer on July 1, 2009

Greetings Puna, Jodie Foster thinks there is, although she only has 19 hours of static for her defense.
