Sigh!

And I just LOVE that header. What is it about penguins that make me just want to pick them up and hug them?

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Hilary. Penguins are cuddly. They're loud. They stink. But they're so darned cute.

Wilma said...

Full Page that Beagle Channel picture, and it is breathtaking. Your pictures are always so cool Leah.

Chris said...

I would love to go there -- Patagonia awaits me!

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you so very much, Wilma. The tip of South America is one of my favourite spots.

Chris, if you get a chance, then go. I'm sure you'd love it.

That's a gorgeous photo, cousin! And I've been meaning to tell you that I love the new header!

Blogger is messin' with me today, so heaven only knows what name this comment will appear under!

Leah J. Utas said...

Why thank you and thanks again, Cousin.

I think Rockhopper Penguins are cute and decided to give one a spotlight.

You have an eye for finding the "inspirational" photo. Although the photo is quite eerie, the colours on the main island are quite brilliant when you enlarge it. Great shot, Leah.

Bossy Betty said...

Great shot! ANd I do like the header too!

Reb said...

Just lovely! Peaceful yet vibrant.

A side of the world i need to go see in person someday. Thanks for bringing it a bit closer to me now, through your eyes.

David Cranmer said...

Wish I was there!

Dawn said...

So just when are we going?

Leah J. Utas said...

David, thank you so much. This is a beautiful, if eerie, part of the world.

Double thanks, Betty.

Reb, the empty quarters of the world are my favourite.

Messymimi, you're welcome. I hope you get to see it for yourself.

David, me, too.

Dawn, any time you say.

I can just about hear the water pouring over the edge, just out of sight behind the island.

Beautiful. I can smell that water from here in the desert.

Leah J. Utas said...

Mary Anne, that's probably exactly what's happening.

Nancy, good to see you here. The world smells quite fresh there.

Barbara Martin said...

An awesome photo, Leah. It provides a sense of peaceful solitude.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Barbara. I'm glad you get that feeling from it.
