I think the entire ebook pricing thing is an example of how the legal system can't keep up with the advancements in technology. Great picts

I just love your pictures! Thanks for all that news and have a great weekend.

Thanks. Going to read that article on pricing.

That second picture is awesome. The others are cool too, but I'm not crazy about insects and frogs.

Lovely pics! Loved the light streaming into the cave/tunnel!

I'm admittedly torn when e-pricing is brought up. As a writer, I support a higher pricing structure that enables authors to receive decent compensation for their work; as a reader, I support a lower pricing structure that enables consumers to buy as many works as possible.

And absolutely fabulous pictures! I particularly love the second and third ones. Excellent work!

Nice photos. Like others said I'm partial to #2 and 3--simply magical.

Good to hear the e-reader price going down.

That is one ugly bug, but an awesome photo.

Those are amazing photographs. And I like the detail in the first one--very cool.

Carol Riggs said...

Gosh, lovely photos!! I like the sun-drenched cave shot the best, but they're all great. :) (well, the bug is creepy, but great detail and a great shot LOL)

Jo, yes it is.

JL, that's one of my most popular photos.

Thank you all.
