Evening, Wisdom and Beauty

How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!  Emily Dickinson
The poetry of the earth is never dead.  John Keats

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.  e.e. cummings

Hi there - the light on the clouds in the first image is really nice.

My swallow shot was 20% preparation and 80% luck! I manually pre-focused on a spot, turned the drive up to fast and let fly every time a bird came in sight! Most shots were blank!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

All gorgeous images Sylvia, the last with the mountains in the background and big skies is beautifully composed. The sight of so many rows of tulips must have been sensational!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
