With no one beside him
He rode out of the sunrise all alone---

I had to revise this image. Artist's work is never done :)

Thank you everybody for your kind comments!! I'm kinda surprised myself to see how clear and vivid images this film camera can produce when digitally transfered.

The horse rider is not Duke, Mike. As you may know, he is long gone. The rider is just a tourist who was renting a horse.
