Amazing work! I saw one of your photos a similar one to this one on PhotoShowdow.com... but it was a silver looking place, framed perfect and spiral upwards. I saw it on the POTD and I thought, "I love this photo", then I saw the name *Cathy Barrows* and I was like I know her. That was my first time on that site., so it was funny. I don't that specific pic on your PB gallery, but it is spectacular!!! #2710258
