    Congratulations, Bill. This is a beautiful image and especially comforting given our colleague's untimely passing. It is a reminder of the endless ebb and flow of time and events, the fragility of life, and that no matter how long we may be aloft above the earth, to the earth we must all eventually return. I think this image reminds us that death is a part of life and just as with each death another person's day on this world is concluded, so a new dawn will follow and our lives and the world must continue on, until for each of us in turn our final day too will draw to a close. Death is a part of life, as much as evening is a part of day.

    Thanks to all for the nice comments and votes. It is bitter sweet, though, considering our friend did not get to see all of these wonderful renderings. I hope we can find some way to get them to his family.

    Wonderful shot, great warm color, the gull really is what makes the shot IMO. In my TT.

    This reminds me of "The Lion King" where the birds fly over Victoria Falls in a beautiful golden glow. This is so pretty~! My Number 1! TT and I am sure Bill will find pleasure seeing this.

    Stunningly beautiful shot. I'm sure Bill would have loved it, especially with the golf connection. In my top five.
