    I'm happy to have won, thanks!!

    And I now get the honor to choose the next topic:

    "Mother Nature"

    70s Mother Nature *Chiffon* Margarine Commercial - YouTube

    Mother Nature: a personification of the forces of nature as a controlling and regulating maternal being, sometimes creative and caring.

    I choose this because we, in NYC, are hunkering down as Hurricane Sandy is approaching tonight.. and I'm typing fast to get this post in before the power goes out!

    Enjoy!!!

    Great idea for a challenge with all that is happening on the eastern seaboard right now:2thumbs:.

    My photo is of something that is unique to my part of the world. This is a photo of a Chinook arch. When they occur they can change the temperature from far below freezing to t shirt weather.

    But the small details like the changing color of an autumn leaf are also stunning.

    When I think of mother nature's grandeur one of the first things that comes to mind is the awesome spectacle of tall mountains. Here's one of my favorites, Mt. McKinley in Denali National Park taken this summer.

    I already posted this in some earlier image thread but I'm always in awe of how many people have perished at this beautiful scene. Interesting factoid: 20-25 suicide attempts occur here annually, making this one of the most popular suicide sites.

    Another from Taal Volcano, the smallest active volcano in the world.

    Incidentally, the lake inside the volcano is the world's largest lake on an island (Taal Volcano) in a lake (Taal Lake) on an island (Luzon).

    And it has its own island!

    For those counting, that's an island on an island on an island!
