Elizabeth A. Zibas May 26, 2019

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate it. No Debbie, unfortunately or maybe fortunately I wasn't skydiving;o) Thomasa, this was taken about 3 months ago and I do not remember the settings. I did have to obtain special permission to shoot at this location and I used both 35mm and digital. This shot is digital as I preferred the digital results over the film. I used a tripod--no flash. I shot several different ways one of which was by using the night mode on my digital camera--this was probably taken that way. #91095
