"Galen's Puff"

Whenever I see clouds like this in a sunset or sunrise setting, I think of that magnificent image by Galen Rowell, of the cloud hovering over Split Rock in California....The cloud in his wonderful picture always struck me as a puff of smoke. So, I decided to call this one "Galen's Puff". .....What a master he was!

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"
