Heaven's Gate

Uploaded: March 28, 2008 15:31:24


This shot taken from a beautiful gazebo in Seaside, Florida. It was unoccupied! It was very scenic with its Adirondack chairs. It did lack cloud coverage that day. I decided to add another photo I had previously taken to the background to suit my vision of this peaceful place. Enjoy!

Needless to say, this is an absolutely spectacular image! Your choice of the word Heaven just about sums it up! The only thing missing in the photo is-- me...enjoying the peace and harmony, and probably a very nice warm breeze coming off the ocean.
