  3. Hi Pat...the palm trees look like a family with the mom and dad and kids. Or maybe it is just me and I am seeing things strangely after a long day at work. Seriously....I love the photo. It has a nice evening serenity to it. Hope you have a great weekend!!

  13. Hello Patrick, Thanks for your recent visit! It's nice to have a "local" around! Love your gorgeous late sunset reflection shot. Nothing beats those Pacific sunsets!

    You mentioned you were visiting Randsburg soon. Have you been there before. I thought it was absolutely marvelous as so much of the old west seems to be disappearing. You will really love Red Rock State Park. Unfortunately, the highway cuts right through it, but other than that, it is a fabulous place to visit and camp.

    Happy Trails!

  26. This is very pretty. I know it's hard to capture a sunset because it never looks the same way on the picture as it did in reality. Do you edit your photos in any way?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Tremendous picture, Pat..... It's similar to one I am putting on my Monday's blog.

    Have a great day.
    Betsy

  30. Icy BC - Thanks so much! Two subjects for the price of one!

    Dawn - I'm happy to say yes to that question. We are very fortunate to live there...

    Talli - thanks so much! It's raining at this moment, so it's not quite as inviting...
