I am not alone

I had no idea if I was only amusing myself when I started this blog nine months ago. I have been pleasantly surprised by visitors like you from many different locations.


Yours truly, my son Chad and his wife Heather, my daughter Jacey and my wife Dori spent Christmas at Fairmont, BC last year and thoroughly enjoyed the hike to get to this spot. They all say hi.

I have had a lot of fun discovering people, photos and ideas from around the world as well as close to home.

Thank you stopping by, liking my posts and commenting. The interaction is a bonus I didn’t expect.

As the year winds its way down, I wish you all a Merry Christmas from our family to yours, wherever you call home.

It would be interesting if you left a comment indicating where you live since I’m not always sure.

It’s somewhat amusing that blog readers chose this photo as my best landscape since I took it with a point and shoot camera just a few minutes from our house.

According to WordPress, I have been honoured to have visitors from Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, India, Netherlands, Romania, Germany, Finland, South Africa, Turkey, Norway, Poland, Italy, Singapore, Slovenia, Belgium, France, Philippines, Luxembourg, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Brazil, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Greece, Mexico, Viet Nam, Spain, Israel, Egypt, Pakistan, Sweden, Ukraine, San Marino, Ireland, Russian Federation, Austria, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Portugal, Bulgaria, Armenia, Denmark, Thailand, Republic of Korea, Oman, Côte d’Ivoire, Nepal, Argentina, Slovakia, Puerto Rico, Peru, Serbia, Saudi Arabia, Ecuador, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Myanmar, Jordan, Guadeloupe, Latvia, Yemen, Morocco, Algeria, Estonia, Barbados, Hungary, Belarus, Bolivia, Tunisia, Kenya, Jamaica, Bangladesh, Qatar, Croatia, Czech Republic, Uganda and Sri Lanka.

    Hi Lyle,

    Well, I’ll cop to being a resident of your less-politically-enlightened neighbor to the south (the US), though I prefer to think of myself as a citizen of the world. 🙂

    Thanks for all the great images and words. I notice we share some of the nicest, most discerning readers who appreciate gorgeous photography and brilliant writing. 😉

    Best wishes for a great New Year, filled with incredible photo-ops…and tell your family a special “thanks” from me for letting you wander off unsupervised to get all the awesome pics you post!

    PS Also, thanks for always finding the time to post a comment to my blog. I hope to be better at reciprocating in 2013…

      Citiizen and photographer of the world works. I appreciate your kind comments and yes you are part of the nice and discerning readers. Your photos continue to impress me and occasionally blow me away (like the lava posts). How could I not comment?

      I have had some wonderful opportunities for unsupervised photography and it’s been a lot of fun to share them on the blog.

      All the best with your photo endeavours.

    Happy New Year from just outside of Washington, D.C. in Maryland. This is my first time visiting your blog, but I can see I’m going to have to add you to my long list of blogs to visit often. I just finished my first 365 project (though it was 366 this year) and have learned that I relate to what you’ve posted on your About page. It’s amazing how great a day can turn out just because a cute, little cardinal decided to pose for a picture during my trail walk or a hawk decided to hang out at the Tidal Basin and I was lucky enough to spot him. I’m still on the never-ending search for an owl. Best of luck to you in 2013!


    • lylekrahn says:

      Congrats on the 366 project. That’s quite an achievement. I’m also feeling like I’m on a never ending search for owls. I’m guessing we will post them them when we find them.Happy New Year.

    Happy Holidays from charming historic Oley, PA. ( it’s ‘near’ Philadelphia~near being a relative term these days.) Thank you for proving that talent is talent no matter the equipment. Cheers!

    Happy New Year from Coolatai, Australia – go on, find Coolatai on a map, I dare you 🙂

    Last Wed. we had a huge bald eagle land on the top of the largest pine tree in front of our house and beside being utterly amazed all I could think of was “Why isn’t Lyle here?”. Your pictures are amazing and the blog always leaves me with a smile. Keep up the good work as God has given you a great gift, Lyle. Merry Christmas and all the very best in 2013.
    Carol and Noel


    • lylekrahn says:

      So nice of you to ask that question – I wish I had been there! To know that I have brought smiles to someone means a lot to me as well as the kind comments. Hopefully your Christmas and the new year will be the best ever.

    Best wishes to you and your family for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year from Alexandria, Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C. As you know from my numerous comments, I really enjoy your photos and your humor, but most of all I appreciate the support and encouragement that you provide to me and a lot of others (trust me, I am not stalking you, but we both follow a number of the same blogs and I can see how supportive you are of others too).


    • lylekrahn says:

      I have certainly noticed your friendly face at the bottom of a lot of blogs that I have visited. At times WordPress seems like a small place (the stalking comment was funny). Thanks for your own words of encouragement which are inspirational to continue. Hope you have a great Christmas Mike.

    Happy Christmas to you and your lovely family, Lyle, from exotic Lansing Michigan.

    Lovely to meet you and your family. Christmas blessings to you all from North Wales, UK.

    Hey, Lyle! I was introduced to your wonderful photography through a mutual friend, Arlene Martin. She knows I’m a “nature nut” and wannabe photographer. 🙂 Your photos inspire and your blog is always entertaining, witty, insightful, warm and personal. Thank you for sharing your gifts and talents. I live in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA – “The Gateway To The Smokies” (The Great Smoky Mountains National Park). Have a very Merry, Blessed Christmas!


    • lylekrahn says:

      Thanks for introducing yourself Debbie. Wow, I’m not sure any blog could live up to your generous description but thank you. It has been fun to share and find others like you who are fascinated by nature and photography. It sounds like you live in an interesting place and I’m guessing those Smoky Mountains just might be photogenic. Merry Christmas.

    Wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

    SW Oregon, but you may have already figured that out from my blog. I’ve enjoyed your images.
    Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!
