A tour of your gallery has so many wonderful images...this one caught my eye.....a very belated Congratulations on this win....and the after shot...wow...really shows what a few hours can do to a shot...sometimes even minutes or seconds. My very dearest friend Don Loseke is from Nebraska...he now lives in Sun City West most of the year with an occasional trip back....I'll have to make a trip to the heartland to see it one day....Have a wonderful day & Happy Halloween =^,,^=
