Surreal



 Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Denver Colorado


in bright noonday sun 
I take time to contemplate
poised atop the world 
life seems perfectly balanced
and then I make the descent

    1. Quite real! .... and I was only half way up when I stopped (breathless) to take the photo! 'Counting Crows' staffers were busy setting up for that night's concert. Tons of in shape folks 'running' the wide wide steps that serve as seating. Awesome place, with tons of musical history ~~ a must play venue.
