Heavenly clouds...

...hanging directly over Castle Rock, in Castle Rock, Colorado, in 2006 during our last visit with our son. Two years later, he was gone. ;(

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(Old West Wales Boy), Germany

I´m not sure what to write today after reading your comments !!! It must be hard for you to look at shots like these....
Going in another direction completely .... I see you have a Finepix HS30EXR.As a big fan of Fuji´s bridge´s (I have a S100FS myself,older than yours but it does have a bigger sensor) Have you seen the XS1 the newest in the´s the best bridge camera there is on the market at the moment... very nice (and my christmas wish)

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Thanks, Ant. ... and it's taken this long for me to be able to 'face' that photo (and some others). We never expect to lose our child (even if an adult). There is no way to get over it ... we just deal with it. I appreciate your words.
In the other "direction", I have seen the XS1 but it's twice the money and more than my DSLR cost, so I went w/the HSS30, which I'm loving.

Don from Spokane, United States

Spectacular cloud formation. The color of this time of day makes them even more appealing. Excellent sky shot!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

I'm so sorry, Judy. i was so caught up in the image that I didn't read the text below. Please accept my apology?

15 Sep 2012 11:40pm

@Rick: It's okay, Rick ... a bittersweet photo but no apology needed...., really.

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Thank you. I always read text and for some reason this one evaded me. I was mortified when I saw your reply to my first comment. *hug*

@Rick: Shame on me, I shouldn't have been so blunt. ;(

stunning colours and shapes, and an excellent compo!
so sad, though, that it cannot evoke happy memories ...
