I am a violinist and violin teacher by profession, but it seems I've had a camera in hand most of my life. I recently found a box of photos I took almost 50 years ago, mostly very uninteresting shots of my sister and my dog. In a photograph, I look for the same things I do in music: contrast, rhythm, harmony, beautiful colors, and interesting lines. I've been very fortunate to be able to travel a bit. My family don't understand why I spend most of a trip behind the camera, but I relive my travels daily as my shots come up randomly on the computer, while they have only vague memories. Thanks for visiting. I look forward to reading your comments.

I'll say reluctantly that I think it's outside the "Window Views" parameters, but it's a wonderful picture, Jay! Very well observed and photographed.

Cheers, Marilyn

Thank you, Marilyn. When I woke up that November morning to discover this phenomenon, I went running for my camera. I've never seen anything quite like it before or since. I'm glad for an opportunity to show it off in "Window Views."

Marilyn, how delightful to hear from you again!

You're right, of course, the whole trip was fabulous. We had planned the Greek trip for 18 months, but added the Turkey leg (!) a year later while hosting a Turkish exchange student. She is coming back to the states this summer to join us on an expedition to Yellowstone, so I hope to be posting some more nature shots.

This year we've hosted an Israeli Arab girl, so there will probably be another trip in the offing.

BTW, it's rumored that the chandelier shown here may be the largest in the world!

Jon,

Mind? Of course not! Many thanks for highlighting my work--and for hosting the SD group.

Skylar,

Thanks for the like! After 12,000+ views, I guess it was about due for one. :) I hope to get back there for some more pics this summer!

Austin,

Not exactly streetlights. There are banks of huge flood lights that illuminate the area for a while in the evening. Through some process I have never discovered, they are able to change colors, altering the mood of the scene like stage lighting, but the white version gives a good impression of full-spectrum daylight. I confess, though, to some photoshop color correction.

I am impressed at how well the lighting is designed, to make the falls attractive and colorful without seeming (to me at least) garish or obtrusive.

Thanks for your comment!

Thanks, Professor! I appreciate your visit. Greetings from South Dakota.

Jay,

Can you contact me about using this photo(s) for a community directory?

Thanks a lot for the visit and the kind words, Jay!

he looks like "Larry the Cable Guy"
