I came across this neat image looking torwards the ocean from a small forest canopy and when I clicked in it to enlarge I saw your name…..I thought no I can’t be….I come to the site and there you are!!! How freaky! Hope you have been doing well. Some amazing images in here that’s for sure! I said to Rich I went to school with you so how freaky is that huh!

    Hope all is well.
