Murry Grigsby October 23, 2007

Wonderful image Bill! I love the autumn colors reflecting in the rings, the narrow DOF and the specularity of the sun spots. Well done!! When I was a kid they hung from a circular device and were called monkey rings because we would swing from ring to ring and make our way around the cicle of rings--thanks for the memories :0) #4966296

Cary Rogers October 23, 2007

I didn't know what they were, but I love the shallow depth of field. Makes the line of the rings seem endless. #4968313
