Mary and Colette, thank you for your kind words. I wish that EVERYONE could have seen the Gates. Granted, there are some people who just didn't "get it," but I believe it was a monumental artistic feat! And, although the Gates would have looked cool in any season, the saffron color of the Gates SPRANG from the gray landscape of winter. I only wish my photos could capture the greatness of it! Thanks again! Happy shooting! Jay
