Title: Panorama Inside the Pantheon

Story: I shared with you my first reaction to seeing the Pantheon and my first glimpse at the oculus and dome.  Once I ventured beyond the door, the full beauty of the Pantheon unfurled like a budding flower.

Story: On my way to Venice, Italy, every now and then I would peek out the window to see what was out there. As we were approaching our destination, I glanced out and saw these amazing mountain peaks that looked like miniature toy mountains. I was compelled to capture this moment.

Title: Cloudy Skies on the Canale

This photo was taken on the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. I was fascinated by the clouds in the sky and the way light was diffused through them. I also like the balance of the water and sky in this photo.
