Beau and I were out walking in the woods on Friday afternoon and the sky began to do wonderful things.

Dear friend! Today the two posts the sky and clouds. An excellent landscape master Jack ... from foreground which gives the sun a little to the bottom shaded by the powerful effect of clouds and sunlight that filters through them. I read your words. what you mean. Nature always surprises us these wonders! Thanks for teaching here. Well ... I guess this wonder! A hug and many kisses for you and your family. Good Sunday! Adela
