Quantum Speed Bumps

After the two little canvases I went big with this one. Quantum Speed Bumps refers to high energy photons having been measured as traveling at a slower speed than lower energy photons.
(My interpretation) Therefore the more beautiful and sublime something is to you the more energy, spiritual/emotional/physical, the experience is to you. A drive on The Going to the Sun Highway, a hike in Yellowstone, that girl you've been crushing on walks by, you just about have that 5 lb rainbow in the net, the plane has made a safe landing or "damn, that beer is cold!" etc, etc....
In other words a high energy photon causing time to slow down, a quantum speed bump... ;-)
