Thanks Roseann! :) Glad you like this one.
Bodie is a wonderful place for a photographer. A ghost town in the eastern Sierra's in California. This was taken October this year. The elevation here is about 9,000 feet so gets lots of snow in the winter.

Thanks for the added details! I know Bodie well, being a California girl transplanted in Austin, Texas. : )

Hi Randy--very nice! The complementary colors are very pleasing. Great textures and lighting. I'm glad to see you got to make a trip to that famous ghost town. I've never been there myself--yet.

Hi Randy, good to see one of your excellent images displayed here. Looking at this image reminds me what a fine photographer you are ... Merry Christmas dear friend, I might not communicate too often but you are in my thoughts(Especially when I open a bottle of Bordeaux!)

Sorry for being late to respond to these wonderful comments. I've been doing some shooting in Maui, Hawaii. Weather was not at its best but still great and I enjoyed every minute :).
Didn't even check the net while on traveling, and it was a thrill to see this shot as a finalist. Thanks Bunches!
