The Sky's the Limit -3

Although the ridgeline is almost completely dark, I was still rather happy with this shot because it catches the sun JUST at that last moment, before it falls completely out of view - over the edge: "Plunk!"

MESSAGE FROM DENNY: TOMORROW, WE WILL BE WINGING OUR WAY TO THE SEATTLE AREA FOR A WEEK WHILE WE ATTEND THE WEDDING OF ONE OF BARBARA'S NEPHEWS. THE ADDED "BONUS" IS THAT WE WILL SEE OUR GRAND-DAUGHTER AURORA, AS WELL AS HER MOM AND DAD, LYNDSY AND DAVID. I HOPE TO HAVE IMAGES UPON RETURN AND I PROMISE TO TRY AND PRESENT AS MANY "SCENIC" SHOTS AS I CAN....I HAVE PRE-POSTED SOME SHOTS BUT MAY TRY TO ADD SOME FROM THE BEAUTIFUL PACIFIC NORTHWEST IF I CAN. THANKS TO ALL!

- " 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
