Beautiful photos. That sunset is gorgeous. Makes me want to visit your part of the world. I just love the last one. Such brilliant colours.

Thanks for your comments on my photos of the Smithsonian. We didn't get to see all we would have liked because of time restraints.

Have a wonderful day.
Blessings,
