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. : ) #284034

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!
