Some online friends and I have been working on getting new web sites set up to sell products featuring some of our favorite subjects.

A gal that loves horses and equines of all kinds has created Longears Love, a site that features Mules, Horses, Zebras, and much more on great products and gifts.

Her Mules in Harness section shows great mules being useful.

Looking at the Mules has brought back good memories of watching the Francis the Talking Mule movies. Now… That was one smart Mule! They were a fun series of movies done in the 1950’s with Donald O’Connor as the co-star.

For something a bit different… There’s Dress Wicked.com featuring Goth, Punk, and Halloween designs.

I’ll confess I’m not into the darker stuff. I do like a bunch of the Cute and Spooky designs the webmistress has picked for her site. Cute Devil Baby brought a smile… Don’t we all know some cute kids that get into lots of mischief?

Moving on to Sweet Tees & Cakes… Which is about… You guessed it… Food!

I wonder how hungry she got picking out designs and products to feature on her website?

Just looking at the Fruit and Veggies section makes me want to nibble on something. And… What’s better to nibble on than some fresh Fruit or Veggies?

Last, and hopefully not least… The site I’m working on… Nifty Sky. Photographic gifts featuring beautiful Sunrises, Sunsets, Rainbows, and Clouds.

I love how pretty nature can be with her lovely skies. What better way to share the wonder of nature than with Greeting cards, Calendars, Mugs, or others gifts with pretty photos? Something as simple as a Lone Tree under Clouds can be such a pretty sight.

I’m sure we’ll all be busy adding more good stuff to our sites as time goes on.

Beaming Sunset by Kent Lorentzen

Glanced out late yesterday afternoon and saw an orange sky. Oh my… It was the sunset. Grabbed the camera, threw on a jacket, hat, gloves, and boots, then headed out to try and capture the lovely sky.

It’s so hard to know when taking the pictures how they will turn out and if any will do justice to the view. Several turned out decent and a few others could be improved if they were cropped

This one… Is just the way it came out of the camera.

Turned out to be a nice winter sunset with the orange beam of light shooting up into the sky. There are enough clouds to color the sky nicely with the orange tint from the setting sun. It’s not every day you get such a view.

February Sunrise by Kent Lorentzen

This morning’s dawn sky had pretty colors, so I grabbed the camera and went out to capture some photos of the pre-sunrise sky.

Here’s one that that’s not too bad:

I took this from the road in front of my house looking across the Mississippi river at the pine trees on the East bank. The river is completely frozen over and snow covered after the cold weather. You can see some snowmobile tracks on the river and there are a bunch of animal tracks too. Deer, fox, wolves, and whatnot.

This is a nice giclee print of a Cardinal that I received from Loxly Gallery. What a beautiful bird and photograph, the print quality is outstanding.

Here’s a photo I took of the print:

The photo doesn’t do justice to the print quality or show all the great color and detail that show up when looking at the print in person.

Here’s how the print is shown at Loxly Gallery:

Summing it up… I’ll give a thumbs up as my Review rating to Loxly Gallery for producing a great print! I’m sure to enjoy it for a long time.
