    It looks like the aftermath of Thor doing his best Gallagher impression with a cosmic watermelon.

    For serious, it truly is beautiful.

    It's almost hard to believe that such a fantastic and enormous thing could actually exist.
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    No I'm not hidden, or back, yet. Those photos just look so beautiful I had to compliment you.

    I'll be back soon, just not sure whether I should hit the ignore button for a few folk :-D.
