Stunning image, it speaks so many words.
awesome photo. i wish i could take a ride in one of those, i think!
My thoughts exactly...
The beautiful photo reminds one of this beautiful poem, which concludes with "touched the face of God."
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
brilliant - simply brilliant!
That photo was really unique in the composition.
Loved the, I'm assuming, the sun is shining beams down.
This is my favourite, although JPG artifacta are quite evident. Thanks for sharing with us your experiences
