Audrey, Tom and Andrzej, Thanks for dropping you kind comments! I must have shot about 50 images at this spot - the light just kept getting better and better and better. And each "shot" was THREE shots stored in RAW format (for tonemapping), so my 8 Gb card was filling up quickly!

To me the title of this photo should be 'beam us up' with all its rays which we call Jacob's ladders. Very nice. LIKE.
