Wonderful image Dolores! I love the depth and the way the fence leads to the dune, dune to sea grass and grass to cloudy sky!! Terrific exposure and use of B&W. Even though I love saturated colors I think B&W is making a comeback with great images like yours :0) #942168

William C. Raco level-classic November 28, 2004

Wow, I love the glow, the dramatic coulds, the silhouettes of the grasses, and of course, the way the fence winds its way all through the frame.
This is a gorgeous work, Dolores.
I am quite flattered you thought of me, as well.
Thank you,
