Q: I am curious about more information on the RULES

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This is a hill in one of my favorite parks. I go to this hill just about every week to photograph it. The hill is like a stage and anyone on it is cast. I couldn't wait for the 4th of July to come, to see what the hill would look like at night. So I and and two of my buds went down to the hill and came upon this scene. My heart melted and I just couldn't believe it. I'm not going to lie I kinda wanted to cry because of the beauty!

Below is a link to what I have of the series so far. Enjoy!
