Amazingly pretty..especially the last one in all its varied colors....

Have to say something about the title this time....too sad for such vibrant colors my friend. But apt none the less....I would have liked something like...'Standing Tall' :)

I liked the top left pic the best, with the sun setting in the background. Very beautiful!
I've noticed that many of your pics have a haunting quality to them...
