… back on the ground and looking through the photos I have shot during the flight is a nice time as I get to leisurely look at what I was shooting and spend time looking at the detail and various features and oddities of what I captured. During flight I am looking more at the composition, overall subject matter … the generalities, but on the ground I can spend time seeing what I really saw. The the feeling of awe slips in and a smile spreads across my face … I was there and viewing beauty from my perch (okay, it moves) and everything feels good and regardless of other issues in life, it is in these moments that everything is okay and I’m glad I am here!
I took this shot in front of Humphreys Peak, which is buried in the clouds about 3,000 feet above me; to the right is Agassiz Peak and Snow Bowl ski area and the runs are readily apparent. In the lower right portion of the image below the far right runs you can see the ski lodge and below and to the right of it are the parking lots and there are some cars in in it. Not sure, but it looks like I am perhaps a thousand feet above the surface? Smiles!
Have a terrific day … breathe, smile and look at the day before you … know that it is okay … you’re here 🙂 Live it and share the joy that is within you.
