    Today, I received the itinerary for the first plane trip I've taken in years. The first thing I did after I got it? I went looking for your story Just Say No to the In-flight Movie. Its going to be my In-flight guide as I take my first aerial photographs. I voted for this story a long time ago but I just thought I'd stop by to tell you.

    Wow! Just bumping around JPG and I came across this beauty. I think Mr. Ansel Adams would be very impressed. Well I sure am. This also reminds that you gotta push that shutter button when it appears cuz it just won't happen like this again. "An in the moment shot." Thanks!!! dp

  • Joseph Rotindo

    Joseph Rotindo said (10 Aug 2009):

    Alexis...probably the tenth time I've come back to look at this photograph.

    A very important image. The surreal nature of the clouds is so bizarrely contrasted with the concrete nature of the mountain...which I believe creates a real "yin/yang" influence. So dynamic, this...

    One of the best photographs I've ever seen. Anywhere.

    Again, congratulations.
