Default The greatest photograph I have ever taken

More than scenery, this perfectly describes how I have felt about my life for a long time. At the time that I took it, the symbolism didn't yet occur to me.

Wow... that is too cool... and also a great idea for a new thread!! (so that we don't hijack this one!!)

I loooove those "shades of visibility"... (I seriously think my English is fading away!!! At one point I wanted to write "the" and instead came up with "de")

That is an awesome picture! So secluded it seems... I went to a very populated part of the wall (Baglading sp*?), but I must say it was one of the most amazing experiences ever with all the mountains and it seeming to go on forever.
