  1. Wrong! Wrong! I call for intervention by the language police! Gratuitous means "uncalled for; lacking good reason; unwarranted" and that photo is absolutely lovely and is its own good reason. Warranted, you betcha!

  2. Nice, Harold, but it looks just a bit blue to me. Try adjusting white balance with whatever software you like to use and see if you like that better.
