A distant light for our dreams.

By annettep38  
Many thanks for all you comments on the frog and the votes. Let me explain: French frogs, unlike British ones, live in lakes and ponds. They hide in the reed @ lightning speed, to be safe from the Eaters Of Frogs. And no, I do a lot for a good picture but I don't swim in a pond at 9C to ask a frog lady to sit on a lily pad.

Well we suffer from horrible weather but no one suffers like the people of Oklahoma so our friends across the pond our prayers are with you.
Here is one from the archives, Norah Head Lighthouse.

I cannot describe my feelings about the poor people of Oaklahoma and my wish that I could do do something to help.

LOVE the image and hope that our good wishes whisk across the pond and offer some comfort.

Thought I recognized the name, one we visited Jan last year Smile A lot better composed and colour/light than anything I produced. The gold reflector provides an excellent contrast to the sunset colours.

It is so heartening to hear all of these sentiments pouring in from around the globe for those poor folks of Oklahoma.
Annette, your commentary is very much appreciated. The rest of the US is feeling the same way -- agonizing over the loss of so many innocents in the path of the storm.

This image is wonderful -- beautiful light, forming a magical pastel gradient in the sky. The composition is perfect and, as Dave mentioned, that gold reflector does provide a nice off-set.
Thank you, Annette.
