Great robust captures, hercules. Wonderful fresh-honey-yellow gift from the Sun. Zeus' breath hovering over the mountains.

Now that surprized me! From Marysville to Sparta, now that's quite a change!!!

I've been on the Island for 16 years now and 4 countries and 4 US States before that. When were you last in Marysville 'cos that place has really changed in the last 10 years.

Squirl, I used to sail every Friday night out of Kirkland for the races there, Fun town.

It's always a great idea going to the mountains with some occasion, arkadaƟ!

I especially liked the first one in which you captured sunbeams through the clouds Judging from the recorded image, I assume the actual experience must have beentwice as much dramatic there!My humblesuggestion would be alittle smooter transion around the sun undoing the greenish halos as well, for an evenmore natural look.

Yes that is a change last time i was in Marysville was in 2001 i opened a restaurant in Everett Wash, aka Conto's Greek and Italian Restaurant bought a house in Marysville then left again in 2002 to come back here, a really big mistake it is much better for kids out there in the states as far as opportunities go and school, i just might come back next year if i could just get a yes out of my daughter
