    Beautiful, beautiful images once again Steve.  I love the Sleeping Swans!  They are so hospitable when others join them.  Very wonderful photos of them.
    The glow on the mountain from the sunset is so warm and that moon over the mountain with the twinkle of lights at the base, really really pretty!
    Thank you for sharing Alaska with us yet again.  (but not the snow)  [chuckle chuckle]
    Have a great afternoon and evening Steve!
    Barb 🙂

    Hey Steve!
    Your swans, these are quite elegant and civilized creatures.  I loved the way the slumbering three, most graciously allowed the other two, to share their side of the marsh. Your "mingle mingle" and discription put it all in the proper staging.  This was adorable!
    Your sunset has a different feel, more inclusive of the human kind around it (street and lamp posts!).  This is a bit of a departure for you! 
    I love the "pinkie" shade of the Alpenglow and I tend to agree with Barb on the last one.  The lights give this a "villagey" quaint feeling. 
    There is such a broad range of subjects here.  Very nice Steve!  You are definately giving this new one a "run" for it\’s money!
    hugs,
    Sheila

    Beautiful sunset… And the Flatop Mountain red tint looked great.  Places I have never been and will most likely never be…

    LOvely sunset photos. The swans are so graceful,and I always thought they were a bit territorial,but it seems they are really quite sociable.

    Wonderful photo\’s 🙂  I love the sunset but my favourite is definitely the moon over the mountain – not tried my camera with night shots, but the moon is bright at the moment and the skies clear so must give it a try – was tempted to try to catch the gloriously bright stars this morning as I got the car out the garage – but it was too damn cold 🙂  Caught a wonderful sunrise at work yesterday though and will post those later.  Thanks for the delivery yesterday – keep em coming 🙂
