Mt Whitney as seen from Lone Pine, CA. I have had this image in my archives since 2007 but I have always liked it. Not that it is that great, technically, but this particular view of this gorgeous mountain, along with the the clouds and light have always appealed to me. Mt whitney is the highest peak in the contiguous United States at 14,505 (4421 Meters) . It used to be the highest peak in the United States until Alaska, with it's Mt McKinley (elevation, 20,320 ft / 6194 Meters) joined the union. Mt Whitney rests at the southern end of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains which run nort and south along California's eastern portion.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
