Oh my WORD!! I missed seeing this shot way-back-when, Susie, but since you placed a comment on my new upload, it prompted me to take a look at your newest uploads. This is FANTASTIC! I love the perspective you chose along with the lighting and composition. Very nice work.
Celebrating life, Debra

One of the greatest activities ever!


The Balloonist Prayer
The Winds have Welcomed you with softness.
The Sun has blessed you with his warm hands.
You have flown so high and so well
that God has joined you in your laughter
and set you gently back again
into the loving arms of Mother Earth.
