Thank you, Michael, for the great comment on my rainy day photos. Would you believe that I rejected all three of these when I was doing the initial edit of the trip. When there are so many, I'm pretty cavalier in my choices (actually, there aren't enough hours in the day!). Glad I keep going back when I have time and re-evaluating. I appreciate your feedback and also hearing from you.
Thanks, Michael - much appreciated. As far as "hand held" goes, it's a matter of necessity. No tripods allowed in a lot of places and it would be technically impossible, anyway, on the tours we use to see such wonderful places.
Thank you so very much for the "faves" and wonderful comments Michael, I really appreciate your interest and support, have a wonderful Christmas
Christmas is forever, not for just one day, For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away Like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
