Stairway to heaven by Ciril Stairway to heaven by Ciril
I am so glad to present you one of the most succesful photo i have ever taken.
I have received first prize-gold FIAP medal for it at 16th International Youth Photo Competition 2003 in Luxemburg.
It was taken near to our highst mountain in Slovenia, Triglav. There were many soldiers and i was walking with them for two days...

i am sure you gonna like it.

There is a reason this photograph received an award at the International Youth Photo Competition 2003. Come see the outstanding quality of this striking capture. ( Suggested by neolithos and Featured by hesitation )

Fell upon this shot while I was listening to 'Stairway to Heaven'. A cool coincidence. And this is a wonderful shot.

It's like an army of ants, in the shadow of the great mountain! Great eye and seizing the moment...awesome contrast of man vs. nature. Good on you walking with them for two days (how long to come down?) lol. :)

I wanted to ask for your permission to use this picture as the cover of a non profitable magazine which belongs to an addicts rehabilitation community, the magazine is released once a month (the cover changes each month) and this month's theme is youth and finding a life path. Please contact me as soon as possible! Thank you very much,

Sensarium Pioneers SensariView, Putting High Definition Art on Public Display

Sensarium High Definition Art Display Network allows artists and photographers to reach larger audiences, and business owners to display stunning, original high definition artwork.

SAN DIEGO -- Sensarium is installing high definition art displays in public venues powered by SensariV iew. Using this original display technology, thousands of emerging and professional artists can reach new audiences, while businesses, public facilities and more can enhance the public experience of their buildings.

The solution developed by Sensarium's founders was to extend the concept of art in public: install high definition digital monitors as living art galleries in venues and broadcast the art to new audiences with Sensarium's proprietary SensariV iew™ technology. SensariV iew™ presents interlocking productions simultaneously on multiple high definition screens. The timing and presentation of video and imagery creates a stunning visual experience. Sensarium can also broadcast sound if desired.

"When our customers see the display, they stop what they are doing for several minutes as they are transported into the art," said Diane Walden, co-owner of California Tea & Coffee Brewery in Temecula, CA. "People stay here longer and become loyal, long term customers," said Vern Walden, also co-owner of the coffeehouse. "It adds a whole new dimension to our business."

Sensarium is dedicated to serving artists, the public and venues. By providing artists a means of exhibiting (and selling) their work, the public is given a new way to experience art, while venues that host galleries benefit from artistic ambiance and recognition in the community.

Sensarium has many artist programs, and their signature artist program is the Featured Artist Program. Designed for the artist or photographer who wants a dedicated, prime time exhibit of their work, the Featured Artist Program allows artists to rotate selected works from gallery to gallery, enabling them to reach a large demographic and geographic audience.
Sensarium's signature program for venues is the Gallery in Residence Program. Venues hosting a digital art gallery add a new dimension to their surroundings, generate positive publicity and receive up to seven percent of revenue generated by the gallery

The name Sensarium was chosen to signify the company's future goals: the development of dedicated digital galleries where visitors can experience an interactive artistic and musical immersion experience.

About Sensarium

Sensarium, Inc. ([link]), founded by artists and engineers, provides display technology for venues and production services to artists and photographers who want to effectively and affordably exhibit their works in public.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How evrything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
And shes buying a stairway to heaven.

This seems so sad to me...
Don't understand this the wrong way, but I hate military. Not the people, but... the fact that they kill and die. And for what? nothing. We all will die one day, so what's the point of dying early to protect something that will just die anyway?

Is there a highway to hell as well?

It's called a Hell-evator, I believe.

As the Grim Reaper walks with thousand souls up to heaven, the skies calmed down so that they can enter into the paradise that awaited them in peace.

(Meh, not very good with poets and what-not but this is what i see out of this photo.) this is probably one of the most stunning and the most beautiful shots i have seen.
