Thank you Murry, I really appreciate it.

You are never going to believe this but my husband was miserable because it was so cold and we were heading back to the entrance, I was walking fast to keep ahead of him so that I could stop and get some shots off before he caught up to me. I just stopped and took this. I didn't even have time to think about it and he had caught up to me. I took one shot and was on my way. Needless to say I was really happy to see that it had turned out.
Thanks again Murry and Mark for your wonderful comments.

Funny pic. Well seen. I couldn't help noticing that your name is Maurer, and the German word for wall is "Mauer". There's a funny word play that I like there...Mauer by Maurer. Congrats! #62116

Hi Gary,
Thanks so much for your wonderful comments, I really appreciate it.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I do appreciate it. That is so funny. I never knew that my name meant "wall". Thank you for teaching me something today:-)

Thanks Murry I really appreciate it.

Hi Carol,
Thank you Carol, I really appreciate it.

Thank you Gary, it really means a lot to me. What's that old saying? Always a bridesmaid never a bride:-)

Thanks so much Cathy, I really appreciate it very much.

Thank you Damian, you are so kind.

Thanks again everyone, I truly appreciate it. Now I just have to convince my husband it really WAS a great thing that we were out on that extremely cold, windy day:-)
