Escape – for some it’s the aching pull of the open road that tugs at every fiber of their being, whispering to them to throw a bag in the trunk and set off to destinations unknown. Others find escape lying in the grass at the local park on warm days, the green stems tickling their legs and arms as they stare upwards at the clouds wandering the sky. Some find escape in a weekend getaway with their family, watching their children or grandchildren splash through the waves with a look of pure happiness on their faces.

      For sure, you have plenty of incredible images, and your selection for this week’s escape was a great entry! Just arrived at the oldest hacienda in Ecuador, and I suspect I will glean some great material to reflect ‘escape.’

      congratulations on the people’s choice!

      Great photos. The swaying palms, white sand beach, and rain-cloud background have provided an escape, for my mind anyway. Love the floating island as well, what better way to escape! Your own island.

      This photo captures that ephemeral moment when the division between the personal and the universal is blissfully dissolved, allowing inherent unity to bloom.

        I’ll be forever scrambling to inhabit that ephemeral space beyond a moment. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you Dustin.

      Wow, what a moment, you seem to be standing on the edge of the world — I can see the beauty of your thoughts portrayed in that proud stance. A stunning moment captured.
