___________________________________________________

This is a photo I took from a plane a few weeks ago (we were flying over Switzerland at 10 km above the ground!). I've repainted several parts of it. Many thanks in advance for your constructive feedback.

More facts: The mountains look rather small because we were very high, but they are huge, many of them exceed 4,000 m with the highest, Monte Rosa, reaching to 4,638 metres (15,217 ft), and there are also numerous glaciers including several of the largest in the Alps, such as the Aletsch Glacier, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001 with a length of about 24 km and covering more than 120 square kilometres!)

(The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10)

Never Let Your Dream Go By

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Never let your dreams go by,
Never let your dream die;
Nothing here goes on forever,
Like, 'I love you always so'.
You should always feel and know,
But our ways are sometimes blind;
Every thought that lives and flows,
Like the time that grows and goes.
Opened doors are left behind,
Just as time passes down and flies;
Everything in life here dies,
But every soul goes together.

There are laughter’s in the air,
There are cries everywhere;
We have time so we can try,
Never let our dream go by.
Never lose what you have found,
Take your dream to a solid ground;
Reach a mountain reach the sky,
Reach the top before you die.

Never let your dreams go by,
Have a time and have a try;
Opened doors are left behind,
On the mountains you shall find,
Those open doors go everywhere.

By the way Ben. As a DA friend, I should let you know that soon there will be a way to make some money through stock art here at DA.

Check out :iconstockproject: for more info.

I don't know if I am suppose to be spreading the word yet, but I guess I just did.
