The final Moments

like a baby drifting off to sleep
Ya might as well view this large since it really should be viewed in full pano glory πŸ˜‰

I never was much of a kid person πŸ˜‰ however one of the defining moments for me was (and still is) holding my child (and not so recently version 1 – Chaos) and rocking her to sleep. I love the moments as I gently rock, pat and sooth (i am pretty good at that now πŸ˜‰ ) and every now and then I catch her eye and a sly smile erupts from her only to have her bury her face in my shoulder – I know sleep is close – this reminds me of the final moments of a beautiful sunset before it disappears for another day. Sleep tight little tickles.

As for Chaos, when she goes to sleep now, its like a tornado going thru the house πŸ˜‰ (in a good way of course) I guess I'll have to photograph one of those soon πŸ˜‰

There was not much in the way of clouds this day, however the small amounts of clouds and the classic QLD evening turned on a very nice show of warm and cool colours all within the space of several minutes.

Techie data:
3 shot bracketed panorama (3 sets of 3 images, manually blended together)
D7000 with Nikkor 17-55mm f2.8 @ 17mm- Aperture: f/11 and Shutter Speed: 1/1.5s, 1/6s & 3s
out front – nothing but some light fog

I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed and I always appreciate the time people take to have a look, plus and/or comment.
