I Park for Pink

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 11/24/2003 6:55:09 PM

Here's a zoomed version with only one tree. I had a hard time deciding which should be the entry. Did I make the right decision? #76971

Colette M. Metcalf 11/24/2003 8:05:04 PM

They are both beautiful, Gary!! #279679

Terry R. Hatfield 11/24/2003 8:09:28 PM

Hi Gary! Yes You Did The More You Can See Of This The Better! Excellent Image!! #279685

Janet S Weaver 11/24/2003 8:35:14 PM

These are just beautiful, Gary!! #279699

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 11/24/2003 9:06:05 PM

Colette, Terry & Janet; Thanks for stopping to comment!

Terry; That's pretty much what I based my decision on ... "The More the Merrier" ;-) #279712

Carol Brill 11/24/2003 9:42:32 PM

I like the top one, too, Gary, how can you keep your eyes on the road and what a great way to start (and end) the day! #279718

Theresa McCloskey 11/25/2003 3:29:09 AM

beautiful - love the pink in the sky - I like both of them - lovely shots :-) #279793

Murry Grigsby 11/25/2003 8:51:51 AM

I like your entry choice the best also, Gary. It has terrific balance and depth! Wonderful light and colors. Beautiful commute!! Houston is like this too except you must substitute a car, bus or truck every place you see beauty in your image :0) #280148

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe 11/25/2003 10:35:32 AM

Carol; Even after living here all my life I still find myself driving on auto pilot as I gaze at the scenery! Fortunately the traffic is generally pretty light, so I manage to survive :-) Thank you for commenting!

Theresa; We get pink sunsets and sunrises quite frequently this time of year due to the very low angle, but I don't get very many opportunities to shoot them. Since the sun rises around 10:00AM and the sun sets around 4:00PM, I'm still at work most days :-( Thanks for the kind words :-)

Murry; I'm familiar with those Houston commutes, but I seem to remember a whole lot more vehicles on the road and I believe the temperature was somewhat different! Thanks for taking the time to leave the kind words :-) #280234

Thank you all...I appreciate your kind comments and wish that I had more time to keep up with the contest and everybody's entries. I particularly miss seeing all the awesome photos that you all produce on a regular basis. I've been experiencing severe withdrawal pains without my daily fix of inspiration :-( #308236

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


I had to park and shoot this shot, just to show everyone what the commuters at Valdez have to put up with.
