Re: Purple Mountains Majesty


The purple mountain majesty of the Rockies above the golden fruited plane of the prairie, at sunset ... or sunrise ... heck, stand facing the east and it'll be sunset; stand facing the west and it'll be sunrise. And it's all done up in yellow and purple for your viewing pleasure.
On black. I tried several other colors for this (not white, though) but black really did work the best.
I hope people enjoy it.

I grew up in Colorado, right near Denver. I saw this and immediately knew it was the Rockies. Good job! I love it.

I ended up doing a very similar design! I was going to see if you minded if I submitted it, but I think I'll just save it for another contest.

Thank you. I really love the Colorado Rockies, though I've only been there twice.

I kept thinking, "purple, purple, what's purple" because I love the color, and when I thought of the song, I had to do it.

Sorry for the delay. As we've seen many times over the months, people do come up with similar ideas for the same derby. I appreciate your asking, but if you were really working on it before you saw this -- and I trust you *g* -- then it's your call whether you want to submit it.
You could also save it for a rainy day where it might fit another theme. That's certainly worked for me.
Either way, good luck --- to us both!
