robert burks 4/27/2005 2:57:58 AM

...hi Donna...I like the colors of blue in this...and especially like the little "still cove" to the left of the center rock if I looked there it would be teaming with marine life...i bet it could be a vertical compositon in of itself... nicely done! ...what type of thread did you use for the stictching? :) #1295422

I see this was done a while back but Wow, handheld huh, really slick! Very nice and great panorama. I t seems very "fulfilling" to get to see the whole panorama of a place like that I think. And yes, the place looks fabulous. Congrats even if I am late.
