In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect.  Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.

Thanks!

And that's the beauty of these wintertime shots, that you have the "warmth" of the sun, especially in its sunset colors being pushed to the red and *warmer* end of the spectrum, while the bare trees seem to scream "Winter!!" and cold.

Warmth and bareness, all rolled into one.

The trees are simply overwhelmed by the power and warmth of the sun. Beautiful tree silhouettes in awe of a lovely sky, I am certain. Congratulations on your AC. Another 10, Gene. A beautiful shot.

I want to get out there hopefully tomorrow and see if I can get some more shots, who knows, maybe another sundog (or better yet a pair).

Thanks and thanks!

And I stopped caring about that, at least for my own pix. That just means the ones doing it are either just plain idiots, or are jealous of what others can do that they can't. (I'm going with the "they're idiots" theory. :D )

Either way, if you're drawing fire, it means you're doing *something* right! :D

Very well done; better composed than the other, though both very nice. I see the slammers have been at work already today.

Update: Congrats on the blue, Gene! The slammers' activities apparently don't affect the approvers' judgments...
