The Trifid and a Reminder
      #5383509 - 08/23/12 08:49 PM

It was over a week ago when I had one of those relaxing evenings that was clear and the Trifid was as high as it was going to get. Tonight, after a day of mistakes, I recalled the observation in a unique way, which led to this story and sketch if you care to follow the link. If you do not like religious content, don't go there. http://christworksministries.org/inspiration_unfailing_love

Thank you for your comments. It was a humbling day but sure seem to make the Trifid real in a new way.

Thanks all. It was a wonderful evening. So nice to use a C8 at F/2 on an object like this. It puts it into perspective.
