Daily Photo Tour - Finding Adventure in the Evening Air

Our magical moment of the evening was made by a cast member working at the World Famous Jungle Cruise. She escorted us through the exit for the upstairs waiting area to take some pictures. Not only was it a wonderful experience to be able to take pictures from there, but she talked with us for probably 20 minutes while we did. I really appreciate cast members who go out of their way to make your experience at the park even more magical.

This is absolutely gorgeous . Content, composition and lighting are incredible . The lighting alone would be deserving of a gorgeous . The compositional geometrics are perfect . The contract and gradient light are truly amazing and the colors are warm and natural . The depth of field along with the contrast ratio allows for unbelievable detail .
         This could easily stand with the best I've seen from decades of National  Geographic.
         All this being said it still does not describe what you have achieved here . I'm sure it may be different for different people but for me it is very specific and very special . 
          When I go to Disneyland we are always among the last to leave . When I see this it reminds me of being in the park maybe even after hours and one of the cast members says ..." come on in , I'll make time for you 
folks . " 
       You thought we were either royalty or spies on a mission stealing some extra last moments , extra last memories with the park almost to ourselves . 
       You have capture that moment and did it with the elegance of the finest poets . This ascends this from a great photo to great art.  I know I've said this before to you guys but it deserves repeating :  
       To capture the magic in these moments and share them with us throughout all your photUos is truly a blessing and you should all be very , very proud .
