    Thanks Gale and Andy - I never knew how small they really were until this shoot - they are suppose to be one of the smallest raptures in the area.

    Dianne, It takes planning, careful checking things out, waiting for the right weather conditions, after taking all that into account, it really boils down to just dumb luck.
