I wish you could see the smile on my face at this very moment. I love the selective coloring, the flowers pop. The dreamy look is an excellent touch!! Way to go my friend.

This is beautiful! I love the colors and the dreamy look of your picture. This would be a lovely backdrop for portraits! I can just pictures a bride standing in her beautiful gown! Congradulations!

I really like this image too, Betsy! And I think this would be a terrific shot for BetterPhoto's monthly Where in the World quiz.

So please don't give it away, Betsy ... let's see if anyone can guess. Email me privately with the location, and in several days we'll see if anyone has guessed it correctly.

Again, an excellent photo, Betsy. And, for everyone else, have fun guessing where this scene can be found!

I think it was taken in India, because I think this a lateral view of the Tal Majah (I've always seen it photographed from the front, but I think I can idenitfy it).

I think this is the B'hai Temple, which is north of Chicago, Illinois.

The Bahá'í House of Worship in Wilmette, IL (in Chicago's northern suburbs) is known as the "Mother Temple of the West", so named because it was the first House of Worship constructed in the Western Hemisphere.

The House of Worship in Wilmette was the second House of Worship to be constructed and is the oldest one still standing (the first one in Russia was damaged by an earthquake and eventually destroyed). There are currently seven Houses of Worship with plans for a new House of Worship in South America in Santiago, Chile.

Excellent guesses, everyone, and thanks so much for taking part in BetterPhoto's Where in the World quiz! And for all of you who said the B'hai Temple (which is n Wilmette, Ill., just north of Chicago) ... well, you are absolutely correct.

Betsy, thanks too for confirming the answer. Again, this is such a wonderful image ... keep up the fine work!
Kerry Drager

P.S. to Emily: Your background information on this scenic temple is verrrry interesting ... thanks for providing it! Kerry
