Dear TL Friends: Happy 2007 from Niagara !

Bye now many of you know that there was a little TL gathering in Toronto-Niagara .with *LucBus* Vandana2923* and *moi*
Than on the first day of our tour even *Silke* was able to guiding us around in Toronto.

All these 4 members did already some postings you can check out.

Here you see Lucbus 'sneaking up Vandana' and trust me .. Luc is good on sneaking up on you ^__*

The only thing I did was resize and chosed not to bring colored skies with PS/ pp.. since it was a grey day and I left it as an honest 'as is' photo!!

We had a fantastic time and the mood was really fantastic ! ***SEE WORKSHOPS****for funny faces!

Thanks for popping in Folks

**Tempus Miscet Tristitia Laetis**

Hi, John,
Luc is sneaking up Vandana, while you are sneaking up on both of them :)
You are right about the sky - it is grey, but there is enough red on your friends' jacket and racksack to lighten the picture. Wonderful photo!
Did I wish you already all the best for the new year? If not, then I wish it to you now :) Isn't it too early in Canada now? Or are you still celebrating?

Dear Johnny, quick last check om the laptop annd in 35 mins my friend and I are off back home (12 hours drive)
This photo and in the WS are super! Like Luc's photo's!
Nice you caled me at 12 and happy 2007 back with a hug and kiss also for Yolanda and MandyMat and the 2 little cuties!
John : THANKS! (And Luc) XX

Hai John,
Deze foto brengt veel herinneringen terug, ik heb er ook eens gestaan, blijft fascinerend.

Ha John,

Daar was ik al bang voor. Je houdt het weer niet droog.
Dat moet een fantastisch gezicht zijn daar.
(ik ken er nog een aardige mop van).

Zie ik het nou goed dat je h...

De beste wensen.


An a HAPPY NEW YEAR to you too, John! I would have loved to be there with the group. There seems to be fun wherever you are. The faces in the WS are cute. Put a bunch of Treklensers together and add John to them...
I like the photo because of the action and the strong red colours of your friends' backpack and jacket brightening up the grey day. The rock between them - oh no, wasn't trying to interpret that... Well the rock looks impressive in its closeness, size, and shape. Altogeher a good combination of a strong foreground against a beautiful misty BG.
Enjoy the rest of your trip and get back home safely! Cheers, Cordelia :) :)

Nice winter and holidays mood here, John!
Wish you great adventures and new good friends in new year!
All my best,

Hi John,

Looks like everyone is sneaking up on everyone! Good idea to leave the photo as is, it creates a moody atmosphere.

Good to hear that you all had a great time! (^_^)

Well done & TFS

Ooooo looking chilly John! Great shots of your friends! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hi John
It was a grey day indeed, but I love the way you have focused on the main subjects of the day -- it is *they* who made it bright.

Hello John and Happy New Year to Yolanda and yourself. Lovely photo (photos). I like the greyness with the splashes of coloured clothing. Well done my friend an TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Tamar Tranquillity III’

Hello John,
I'm glad you are enjoying your trip to Canada. Please give my New Year best wishes to all involved.
An interesting picture this, even though it was a "Grey Day", you have managed to capture the excitement and powerful atmosphere (I can imagine the thunder of the water and the feel of the spray on the air). Very well done!
Happy New Year!

Hi John,
excellent shot, clearity, details and composition are great..
greetings and best wishes

Great stuff, John. And you are good at sneaking up on them! Interesting bg: the usual tourist shots of that scene are in summer, not fog-shrouded winter. A page out of David's (Refugee) forte!
Should be sub-titled: wish you were here!

Hi Johnty, good action shot here! The grey of the sky hasn't ruined the shot - makes it look more real.
