I knew it would be you I'd find here Coco! This one was just too pretty for you to miss right? HA! Out of all my ROCKIES images this is probably my favorite. I'm tickled that you like it too!!!

IT's more of a HALF/HALF image not 2/3 1/3 but I felt it really worked.

I should do like others do and just keep reentering it until it goes gold. HA!
