    I genuinely cannot believe you submitted this image to this assignment! It is such an honor to see this moment, even if I was not physically there for it. I was just reading an article with the entire sequence from your encounter, and I so deeply appreciate that this spectacular capture that details not only an incredible rare encounter but also the magic the blue, where such heavy monoliths are suspended aloft effortlessly, as if weightless and unburdened by human impact. LOVE this!!
