    Daily Photo - Once You're Dead, it's Too Late
    I don't know why I enjoy visiting cemeteries so much. They are great motivators for me, really... to get out there and start doin' stuff.

    I try not to let things I really want to do go by the wayside, but some things can't be controlled, I assume. I certainly go through life with a no-fear attitude, and I guess I shouldn't expect everyone around me to be exactly the same...

    Get More Internet Stimulation!
    I made a video to show you how to use Tweetdeck to stay connected to members of the Stuck In Customs community!

    You all have always been very supportive, and I have gotten to know many of you either directly or indirectly via your comments. I think you all will enjoy getting to know one another as well! Typically, by the way, only 1% of readers comment -- but a much greater percentage are very active on Twitter. Remember Twitter gets much much better when you follow people who make good tweets! If you are new to Twitter, you don't have to stress out about what to say... just enjoy following interesting people!

    To get your setup, do the following

    Other suggestions for Tweetdeck:

    Whatever interests you, make a "Search" column for it. For example, my mom loves "General Hospital", so I made a new Tweetdeck column for her with it. Now, whenever anyone on twitter mentions something about General Hospital, she is the first to know!
    Turn off the annoying sounds and the little popup notifier under the settings. For me, it gets to be too much to constantly see updates!

      This reminds me of a small church and cemetary just north of Livingston, MT that I grew up near. Nice shot, and wonderful words of wisdom.

      Nice one, Trey! Kind of a sobering image. Really have to view it big to appreciate the scene. I'm so glad you make the full size shots available for our viewing pleasure. I do the same and I wish more HDR artists did.

      What tx_shooter said, I'll second.

      As for comments, I think the energy on Flickr is more social than it is artistic, but that is probably just a reflection of the world at large.

      In your image, I love the dynamics of those amazing streaming clouds flowing over the frozen, textured, richly colored turf, where Man's monuments slowly give way to the forces of Nature, as we all must.

      Despite the desolation, the Light is encouraging, and it's easy to imagine this lonely place as a playground for spirits in passage.

      Phenomenal composition, I particularly love the movement in the sky. :)

      Can only agree, the compo is stunning. Like the loneliness of the place, and the “heaven” is another chapter. There is not enough space to describe my feelings. Great processing and well balanced. Like it.
