Hey! Way cool. Finally, finally...broke that elusive 7!!! :D

That makes me a member of this club --> 584871.gif

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments. It was fun to read everyones thoughts and feedback.

Little bit of humor in getting this shot. I had been down to the river at sunrise to see if anything interesting would develop. I usually wear camoflauge clothing when I'm hoping for some wildlife shots, this time was no exception.

By the time I got to the park for this shot it was mid-morning. The park was getting busy with people walking their dogs, playing tennis, or taking their kids to the playgrounds.

This stand of trees is in the middle of the playground area. You should have seen some of the looks directed my way. :) Parents cautiously guarding their kids, etc...as this man in camo walked around pointing his camera at the sky, sometimes kneeling or leaning on the trees. He-he.

Lovely image, goes really well with the message. Love the blue inline, it's a beautiful shade of blue. Personally I would experiment with a few other fonts maybe, or make the big "REACH" a different font than the slanted long message. ~8
