    Sights like this are so breathtaking and how wonderful to have a camera when you see them! You’ve captured the light so beautifully! A cathedral indeed it is! Nature’s best!

  23. Bet it’s nice to see SUNSHINE –after all of the snow… Gorgeous photo… We are having nothing here but RAIN-RAIN-RAIN–including fog and dreariness… We needed rain –but would rather have snow… (At least I would. Hubby doesn’t like snow much though.)

    This one has such a special quality all to itself, which goes beyond photography or even imagery for that. I’m reminded of the burning man festival, though to me it captures the intent and spirit of burning man more so than the festival. Pure celebration of spirit. Not a hint of the photographer and that is a good thing I think.

    January 11, 2013 at 03:27

    • Hudson Howl

      Pure and not contrived, I should had in there.

      January 11, 2013 at 03:29

  48. With the trees as supplicants. Your light always adds a positive glow to my day.

    January 11, 2013 at 04:39

  49. I think if I was Catholic I would have crossed myself. Seems holy. :)
