All are top-notch photos...I think the first is my favorite but it is very hard to choose.

GAWO said...

Flotte bilder. Virkelig fine. Og så store de er blitt på bloggen din. Har du også gått over til å først laste de opp på Flicker, eller har du en annen metode. Jeg skulle så gjerne hatt mine bilder litt større men synes det er litt tungvint å bruke Flicker.

SandyCarlson said...

Every one of these is outstanding. God bless.
