  6. Thank you and congratulations! You deserve it – I love visiting your site.

  7. Thank you so much for the support. I shall continue checking out your beautiful photos. If you ever get to the south of France, perhaps I could get a few tips with the camera.


    • HI Lea, but of course! I saw wonderful, unforgettable vivid countryside imagery of France when i took the train ride from Paris to Lourdes years back. I could revisit and look you up and that would be exciting! For now, try to get a good digital cam, take pictures early in the morning or during sunset for dramatic effect. If you need shadows high noon is perfect. Adjust panoramic setting for countryside scenes. Practice makes perfect!

      • Thank you so much Cynthia. I copied it all down for reference.
        Unfortunately, I am not getting anywhere with the Versatile Blogger and copying it to my post. I may have to pass on it but am still grateful for the nomination.

      • Thanks anyway. I understand that I was not the only one having problems with it. I saw another one from your list who made a post without the award attached. C’est la vie and I am sorry to have wasted one of your nominations.
