Beautiful scene, Jill, I love this in b&w and the composition is spectacular. It leads ones eyes thru the entire image. Well done, my dear friend - your good friend, Allan #203119

Jill, This is a neat picture. Love it in black and white. I went to the Badlands last year. It's a beautiful place. The colors are so beautiful on all the different rocks.
I looked at your web gallery. You have some awesome pictures on it. I also went to the Bear country usa. I took over a hundred pictures there. That was a really neat place. The day we were there was very rainy and foggy. The baby bears wouldn't come out. Wasn't it neat to be that close to all the wildlife. When we left to go drivng past the baby bears were out running around. We couldn't believe it. I did some video taping on my digital camera and could see them in the little cave. Did you go to Mt. Rushmore? The fog was even worse there. We had to wait for abut 5 hours before we could even see the faces. We saw them for about 10 min than it fogged up again. I did get some pictures but not real good.
