Patience is a virtue.... and very worthwhile. by 

I took this photograph after telling my best friend that there was a roller coaster under this sign. I stopped and looked up and knew that the angle was perfect for a photo.

I could not move from that spot and despite it being fairly early (by Las Vegas standards) I asked if she would mind waiting for the roller coaster to come through. As she was excited to see it anyway, it was not a chore.

Yay then that when it DID come through, my trustee Canon IXUS 850is captured it at the best time.

This photo can be found on an American Cities/Las Vegas photography website which makes me somewhat proud. No idea why the image is too small for some prints… I shall look at the original and re-upload if necessary. I know that I shall be putting this on canvas for my own flat, so it surprised me.

    Wow!!!! That is a great shot!!! Fantastic POV!!! The palm tree where it is … the cherry on the pie!!! Nice!!

  • Thankyou! Yes, the palm tree was an added bonus! I was going on and on about this coaster to my friend for so long that she was more than happy to wait 10 minutes or so for it to zoom through! Thankyou for your lovely comment and for accepting it :-D
