....as we wake up this morning with frost all around
I boot the computer and Whazoo again astounds,
screen after screen amazes us unbound
asking how is this possible time after time,
Well, the answer is simple, the Great Whazoo surprise.

Your sense of capturing light, real and/or generated, is a gift!!

We hope to awaken tomorrow with Part II [emoticon]

Many thanks for what can only be described as a meticulously thought-out Production, worthy of a documentary award for a genre yet to be coined by the industry !

As Silversand nearly summed it all, I will only add the following:

From LOR to children stories, from humour to passion (turning bottles of beer into a romantic sunset), you liberate in your picture the beauty and history of the forest.

There is no such thing as a silly poem! Romanticism style of poetry in the late 18th/early 19th century expressed the “sublimity of untamed nature”. In a few short lines you capture the feelings of your experience in this grandiose forest.

For all it's magnificence, the big trees, the primeval forest, the pristine beach, one thing is still missing...no donut pictures. C'mon Whaz, step it up a notch in part 2.

Thanks for another taste of the "World according to Whazoo". And my list of things to do that Whazoo and Whazette have already done keeps getting longer and longer. It's getting closer to "Hit the Road" time.

P.S. I consider it an honor to live on your periodic table, kinda wish I was in the white section though.

Great pictures, great fun. Makes me want a TC again but it's not gonna happen. Wife's hip precludes getting into and out of the cabover bed without "issues."

Hi Weymard, thanks for your always positive replies. Your American friends here love you too, but in a manly way.
Trails, you had me at "Thanks". I'll dispute the second remark though.
Silver, you said once that we were something like "similar persona". I tend to like that comparison. However I'm more like the slow country cousin, slow yet affable. And yes, I could definitely generate those rays of light, but some things I won't do to my own pictures. That day, was truly like being in church and I was inspired to my core. Wish you and Silver Dunes could have been there.
Silver Dunes, it's a honor to hear from you. And I'm glad my silly poem isn't silly...to you.
Howdy Rhode Trip, thanks! And I had me going with that one too, feeling rich indeed to have been there.
Haha Farctic, since I know you to be very wealthy in many ways, consider it done...for the next report. And I'll be running the treadmill soon, so I can keep up with you and Mrs. Farctic on the next trip.
RRUGG, well it's a shame to have issues with the cabover, but I also see it coming. Thanks a bunch!

Whazoo, you just totally crack me up! Maybe someday I'll be on your periodical chart...um...as Gw, a noxious gas?

But...you don't have an elemental grouping for redneck liberal gun-totin' environmentalist miner greenie capitalist nuke-the-gay-baby-whales demopublican...do you?

That world is a fantastic place to visit -- again and again.
Many thanks, Dave.

Thanks again Whazoo for another great post. Even though as you say, you take the pictures and put them together for yourself, we get to share. As long as you do it that way it never becomes a burden, but nonetheless, thanks for sharing. Is there any doubt TC'ers do it best?

Next time I break down, I hope it is somewhere near Jefe - how fortuitous - but somehow I think you'd have made friends and found help without much trouble.

Looking forward to part 2.

PS: I guess if I were on that periodic table it would be as a super heavy metal/rare earth
