Pictures for Backgrounds in Squidoo Lenses
I need these pictures on line
So I'm starting this lens and publishing it now. If you have fallen upon it, please be patient. It will develope and it will grow. I'm trying out background images along the lines of Sojourn's lens HTML for Backgrounds (an excellent article unfortunately unpublished by Squidoo) for my list of lenses blessed by angels.
Do come back a bit later and see what else is here. In the meantime, feel free to use these pictures, but I'd be pleased to receive credit and link!

Singing the blues
Well, I sing the praises of Limousin, but it isn't always go gorgeous. These pictures were taken on 14th October 2011 as backgrounds for the heavenly hosts. I'll add a few sunrises, sunsets and some amazing electric storms, like this one, when I have a moment.
