I wonder why this was not a winner. It is a totally superb image. If you have a raw file I'd suggest this as a calendar submission. I'll tell you where if you are interested.

Susan Jane Allen level-classic January 31, 2006

Your gallery is awe-inspiring, Lorri. Wish there were time to comment on all of the images, as each one deserves it and to view each one, but, alas, our server often runs slow here and time ran out. The upside is that on a "good server day" there are a lot more wonderful images here to enjoy! #2362635
