Hi! This is beautiful! I didn't know that there were cable releases for digital cameras, if you don't mind sharing, where did you find one?

I really love this image too. One of my favorites.

And since you did not yet answer Carol's quetsion above, Francis, I think this would be a great image for our monthly Where in the World quiz.

So don't give it away, Francis... let's see if anyone can guess. Email me privately with the location and in a few weeks, we will see if anyone has guessed it correctly.

Again, great image, Francis.

Have fun guessing where this chapel is, everyone!

This is in fact the Yosemite Community Church or "the little red church" in Yosemite.
Nice picture of it.

Not sure, but I've heard about this little church in Drumheller, Alberta. I've never seen a picture of it, but thought this might be one of it.

I apologise I have just seen your pic for the first time - I am bowled over! How I missed it I do not know because it is one of the best images I've seen for a long time, so technically accomplished, wow I could go on......... rita

Yes, all of you would said Yosemite were 100% absolutely correct.

What a great place to take a camera - if Half Dome, waterfalls, wildlife, and El Capitan don't do it for you, there are photogenic little structures like this.

Again, this is a charming image, Francis. Keep up the great work!

What a great image, Francis! You have a lot of technique and a great eye. IMHO this is better than some of the GP winners (but then I don't do the judging!). Congrats on your wins here at BP. Hope you have a nice printer to get them out there on display.
