The past three images I've entered were taken in a very old cemetary in Deadwood SD.


Joy Rector February 17, 2006

gorgeous shot #393792

Gerald Kraus February 17, 2006

nice presentation of a beatiful statue #2429749

Wally Orlowsky February 17, 2006

You certainly have captured the ravages of time and the somber, but peaceful mood, Bobbie. It seems appropriate to spend time in a cemetery when in Deadwood. Is Mt. Moriah, where Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane are buried? #2429824

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-classic February 17, 2006

This is great, Bobbie! I bet you are froze out this morning! I hear it's REALLY cold up your way! #2429862

Very nicely done, Bobbie.
