        I’ve just looked at this on Flickr, Robert, the sparkle on the snow is magical! It’s made me look forward to some snow here, which probably won’t be too long.

        Both of your foil wrapped face shots are intriguing to say the least. 🙂 As Leanne said, fascinating.  Along with your light painting the possibilities seem almost endless. I think you should do more of these. Very creative.

        Iconic capture Dave! Looks like a 1956 Bel Air to me.  Cars used to have flair…every year. I vote we bring back 50s stlying! @pentaxfan

      @bobbie my responses are doing exactly what you are describing.  They are going to the bottom of the page and not under the posting you want to comment on.  (:.  I’ll try to figure our how to clear my cache.

      Until I finish rehabilitating my new knee, I have to rely on archived shots. This is my only sparkly shot. This is how the Mississippi State University opens its football games. I know I have an eye snag photo bomb of a cowbell, but this is entirely appropriate for MSU. Cowbells are their tradition. They have special permission to ring them from the SEC football commission, as long as they do so responsibly. It gets loud in that stadium!
