I snapped these shots while gliding through the clouds on one of my recent air travels. Couldn’t pick a favorite or two to post since they’re all unique in their own subtle ways.

As I was moving through the air, you enjoy moving through my little slideshow!

“Each of your breaths is a priceless jewel, since each of them is irreplaceable and once gone, can never be retrieved.”

Value the Moment: It’s these little golden pockets of illumination scattered around the picture that give it it’s slightly ethereal blue & gold look. The type of day (cloudy) and the time of day (before sunset) this picture was captured quietly add to its simple grandeur (it would’ve invoked an entirely different feeling if taken on a sunny day at noon time). The discreet, lazy puddles of rain including the one, however little, reflecting the liquid pillars (of water) of the fountain, give it a fresh and somewhat tranquil touch. Quietly ponder over and value this moment…
