Nice pic.

Here's one of my older favorites.... and it's an old, old scan... of a photo taken in 1993. The person walking is one of my college roommates, Steve Lancisi, who passed away a couple of years ago due to some health issues. Glad we had a chance to share this trip together....

I am very much drawn to your photo, Doug... the way the various colors of light and dark interplay, and especially the feel of that image. What a wonderful remembrance to have of your friend.

FARASHA - You already know how I do so like those two photos you took in Mulege.

CasaManzana - Those colors are simply stunning! And you get to wake up every morning to some variation on this view??? Oh how extremely blessed you are!

I have lots of sunrise/sunset images... but none compare to these. I believe I'll enjoy this contest as a spectator.

Jim,

No way to top your photo. It's the composition as well as the fire in your sunset that makes it. The Bougainvilla in the foreground, with its strangely contrasting (and yet, compatible) color really enhances the sunset, if that's possible.

I owe you a cerveza for photographing my flood damage in my casita. Now, I owe you at least another for allowing me the privilege of viewing this photograph. See you in January. :bounce:

Oh, and Farasha...Don't sell yourself short. Your photos are beautiful (of course, you knew that!). :yes: I think yours belong in a separate contest because it can't be judged with fiery
sunsets. Yours has an eerie beauty that only color diffused through haze can create. You call it "velvet". Perhaps velvet conjures an image of sensuality in me that should probably be illegal.:spingrin:

Well, wait a minute....maybe I spoke too soon, Jim. It is too early to judge. Some others are coming in that may share 1st place. Second or third place and honorable mention may not be adequate awards for these.

OOPS! Who is the judge here anyway? Sorry. By the way, what is the prize? I may have to buy a few cervezas. Let's see...so far, that adds up to, uh,.......:wow:
