so beautiful and such a sad, sad commentary on the state of our country.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Beth, I have to agree with you.

The current USA Administration's callous antagonism to the Nation's environment may be its most obscene act, Frank.

Your image is almost like a publicity poster, and I like this very much.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray. That is saying something after what they have done in the past..
Beautiful layers you've captured, Frank. This is a landscape that should be left untouched - at least you have the photos so that one day we can say... we were there before...
I suppose - that said - the fight ain't over!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, no, not over yet.

If he had the chance I expect he'd turn it all into a giant factory

In the meanwhile this is a delightful image
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chris, if he had his way it would be all hotels and golf courses!

Trump's actions on such areas is an outrage. No doubt money is his motivation in doing this. I've not heard of this but I've just found a NY Times article on the reductions and what's now open to violation; that includes the Valley of the Gods and the Moki Dugway both of which I have enjoyed. I know the former was built to help with uranium mining and I'm wondering if that is the plan again. Its a fine image and I like the different layers.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Alan. Bears ears is on the way to the places you mentioned.
Compositionally great. Very pleasing to look at.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Andrew.
A mixture of rough and smooth hills. Great colour separation. Trump is a bad schoolyard bully. just ignore him.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary...He's hard to ignore.
A great image Frank, the different levels of recession look so good. I sometimes can't get my head round Trump, if at all, he seems to be acting like a dictator rather than a democratic person, not the Democratic party of course I know he is supposed to be a Republican, but they seem to think he's an idiot as well!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian.He does seem to do whatever he wants.

A wonderful image! What for bad news, but whatever we hear about Mr. Trump is bad and sad.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Philine. I quite agree.
A lovely picture, and an ugly man.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Larry.
What a nightmare the guy is, I hear another one bit the dust today for having a more sane view international affairs.
Frank L Croston.: I can only agree, Martin.
this is a magnificent composition Frank... i hope that you can capture some of the places before they start drilling for oil....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Peter. This is quite a way from us, but we do have quite a few shots from our trip there. They are now talking about uranium mining close to the Grand canyon...Unbelievable!
