I do like the songs (lyrics) of Lehonard Cohen, and particulcarly his chorus woman-voice (Jennifer Warrens - The Famouse Blue Raincoat / Joan Of Arc!!) - they make a terriffic combination! I must admit I don't understand all his lyrics ("First we take Manhatten..."?) but they sound interesting!

As does this picture, Torgny!

IMO this is one of your best works you have posted here. Everything falls into place and I am deeply moved by the mood in this picture.

If you cover up the sun itselfe (crop just below the orange ball) the picture of the landscape beneath with that shimmering orange water gets a certain mystery and a total different mood / expression on it's own!

You have in fact several pictures in one here, Torgny. I love it!

:-))

Ned,

Walter_S,

Thank you both for your nice words. I have no distance to my own pictures, I'm just overwhelmed by the complexity and beauty of nature. That's why I post so many pictures - to get some idea of ....

Very helpful. And as you might have noticed; if I get someone on the hook, I keep on stretching my threads.

Thank you. This picture though is as atomized, as simple as it can get, I think

Torgny

These canine sisters have the ability to ........ nature sceneries as well, something that makes them, not only ........ to pain and moral conciderations, but also being estethical subjects

For reference: the work of the romanticist Caspar David Friedrich

We'll let the day end with this picture of the sundown. We've now entered The Kingdom of Coral Red (thanks, Bynx)

Good bye, Joy be with you. Cheers

gorgeous photos, Torgny... the colors in the sky, and the reflections in the water, are simply marvelous! and the excerpt from "Suzanne" somehow seems to fit...
