I am sure you will, Mira, for I suspect that this sort of view of a landscape is something that is quite familiar to a balloonist! Now I am satisfied that you appreciate this so much, but it becomes a high benchmark for future photography.

My warmest regards,

Dear Ge Ko,

I thank you for your special greeting, very much. I trust that you are enriched by your celebration of Pentecost, also. It pleases me that you see the mystical in this photograph.

Dear Gondor and Liviu,

I value your affirmations! Thanks very much.

And gondor, your comment on metaphor is helpful, for I am usually thinking about the significance or the poetic or as an artist when I am with the camera, so that you also see metaphor here is great.
