Bernice,

You've been a busy shooter!
Great shots. I've always loved the backlighting of clouds creating that golden fringe.
Aloha

#1 is really nice and probably meets the challenge best as well as being the better shot, but I just love the clouds in the second one.

mtngal that's exactly my feelings on the 'merits' and 'feeling' of these two shots, thank you.
