REMEMBER SILLY TUESDAY is tomorrow. Silliness rules for a day each week.

Le Tour - Much of what I love about the Tour is seeing the natural beauty and the magnificent architecture of France; (the podium girls aren't hard on the eyes either).

I'm really surprised by the great quality of your submarine images Jack ! Sharp and great colors. Are you using a specific box ?

Quite an abstract. The amount of colurs is amazing. Are these reaaly submarine images or is there some kind of trick?
