The D-day

You  have until midnight

Please follow these rules.

Oh, and one more thing:
PLEASE, when you send me your photo, remind me of your blog names and give me the web address(es)  of any blog(s) you have that you want me to list beside your photo. It makes it so much easier for me to put on a blogpost. Otherwise, I have to look up all the names and blog addresses each time.

I know you have
either in your archives
you can still run out
and snap
your favorite spot.

Maybe it is a park..

or the mountains...

or a lake....

or your back yard...

or a farmer's field...


(This is a recent shot that I took at sunset on Madeira Beach, Florida)

If I can get a landscape shot,

And, once again...
(because I am a big softy)....

you can go ahead and use one you
already posted
on your blog.....
(which is an exception to the rules link above)....

Because I love you.

(I am SO looking forward to seeing all of your entries once again!)

get off that hammock you are swinging
on this fine Memorial Day weekend,
and for goodness sake...
put DOWN the Barbeque fork with that huge Bratwurst on it
and put it beside that frosty beer..
go inside and send me your photo!!

Your sunset is marvelous. I don't think I have ever been anywhere that has had a sunset like that. One in Minnesota near Mille Lac there was a sky you could die for, but not camera. Thanks for all your hard work. I will include my names and addresses from here on now.
