Have you ever been to Walt Disney World, Troy? To the "Disney Animal Kingdom" Park?

This reminds me of the mammoth "Tree of Life" they have there.

Except yours is real so that makes yours better!

This is beautiful. They should have a Black and White catergory on BP. This is surely the cream at the top at any rate! BP agreed!

Another FAV.

Belated CONGRATZ on your Finalist award, Troy. This is one awesome B&W HDR image. It will be almost criminal not to enter this in the MT this month. Will be hard to beat, good luck if you so decide!!!
