[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. The photo was taken through a glass window pane of my home.


Valentine's Day was probably imported into North America in the 19th century by British settlers. In the United States, the first mass-produced valentines of embossed paper lace were produced and sold shortly after 1847. In the second half of the 20th century, the practice of exchanging cards was extended to all manners of gifts in the United States, usually from a man to a woman. The day has come to be associated with a generic platonic greeting of "Happy Valentine's Day."

Nice composition Evelynn.Happy Valentine also to you.Best wishes.Lenka

Hi Evelynn,
thank you for these cordial greetings showing Oregon winter sunset, creatively placed in a well fitting border for the day. Americans seem to have brought this nice custom to our country just a few decades ago, and flowers are sent and presented to loved ones with joy and with pleasure.
Happy Valentine to you, too!
Best regards from Vienna,

Hello Evelynn

A wonderful Valentine's Day card.The colour of that sky is beautiful.It must be very inspirational to have a view like that right from your home.My sunsets are all blocked by a forest right behind my house,so I have to trek to get a good clear shot.Lovely silhouettes against the fire on the horizon.TFS and Happy Valentine's Day.
