    By God, Paul. Every photograph of yours I see is outdone by the next one. Not only remarkable for itself and its color but for the phenomenon, I am unaware of such things, which is such a delight to discover via your lens. Merry Christmas again.

  • Barbara, thank you so much for your wonderful support!
