We lived in SE Alaska for seven years. I love these fjords; Tracy Arm is my favorite. Beautiful capture.

@john4jack: Thanks. That must have been a wonderful experience living there.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

Another Beauty! I want to go traveling with you, you go to such wonderful places!

16 Nov 2009 2:54am

@Tracy: Thanks,Tracy. Come on and go with us. ;-) I love to travel and try to do two or three "real " trips a year. However, a lot of the photos are from short trips near home or even my yard. I'm also pulling some from the past four or five years since I came over to the "dark side" of digital from film so those trips were a little spread out. LOL I enjoy your photos, and appreciate all of your kind comments.

Bob from Bolivar, United States

As usual, you never disappoint. Your photographs are always spectacular in composition, color, and choice of subject matter. Pretty much everything you post makes me want to be right there where the picture was taken. Thank you for sharing!

16 Nov 2009 9:22pm

@Bob: Wow, thanks for the kind comment. I love travel and nature, and I've been blessed to go to some wonderful places. I doubt that my shot Tuesday makes you want to be right here. Ha, ha.
