Sunday Stills .. the 4 umm make that 5 elements!

This weeks Challenge was a difficult one.. I was going to try and go out and create the perfect picture but my week went insane! So I thought pictures from a recent trip to Vail would suffice .. It is more of an interpretation on some of them .. but isnt that what the freedom of photography is all about? This was a trip June 6 - 28 2009 in Vail, CO Just a few hours from the house.. we are going back Aug 28 - 30 I can't wait!

This one depicts a few of the elements .. It was raining, obviously earth form the mountains, the wind was quite strong (you cant realy tell from the pic but those clouds were movin!)

This one isnt "exactly" fire but that sunset looked like all of the colors in a fire and I just loved this pic!

This was taken high in the mountains and this is my 5th element.. Love, Happiness, Contentment and just plain Fun!
