Dolores Neilson 10/22/2004 7:57:56 PM

What a terrific image, bill!! I thought I had commented on this...maybe you have one similar??

Anyway, I've been away for a little over a week and am glad to be back home. Particulary since it's much colder in Canada!! Was a few days past peak foliage but I shot other things...what else does one do?? Big congrats to you, bill! Well deserved! #863824

William C. Raco 10/23/2004 5:29:42 AM

Thank you, Dolores.
Yes, there is one similar.
I posted a shot taken just before sunrise the day before.
It was almost colorless, quite gray.
Thank you for the nice note
