Stan, what a beautiful photo and the title is perfect. I must tell you that this photo is consoling for me today as my father passed away two days ago and he loved to sail...and was just in Hawaii a couple of months ago, so this makes me think about how wonderful he was...and your photo is perfect in every way!

Aloha Stan. Another incredible image. I hope you are loving Oahu and are happy...so many opportunities there. Everyday I dream of returning...the volcano is really close to us here and we just never know. For a while there we were getting a little nervous as it was heading straight for us! Again, superb photo...I LOVE IT! I just love all your photos...so creative:)
