Angels Flight

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 October 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

Overhead, the clouds float on by,
guided by their heart, lifted by the wind.
Below, we look up and wish we were with them,
to perhaps see why the autumn never looks the same,
And to be grateful that it does not...

- " 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."

The sky above the mountains and the forest gives this image a superb boost. As a great fan of sky images, I think this is a great capture.
