Thanks, Murry and Judy! Murry, I haven't won an award here in many, many years, so this was exciting and surprising. Oh, and my husband pointed out that the last time I won first place here was for a photo of palm tree shadows on the ocean, taken from a balcony of our Maui hotel room. And this photo was taken through the window of our hotel room. He asked if we need to go to another high-rise hotel room so I can win my next award! LOL! #6826616
