Oooeer.. very Ansel Adams! Those old trees have such fabulous textures, don't they?
Frank L Croston.: He does have a lot of influence, Alan,and as you say,those old trees are wonderful,a friend of Elizabeth's worked in Yosemite at the same time as the great man,he told me," I didn't actually know him,but a lot of my friends did",I was in awe....smile

Yes, Anselm Adams lets greet - this is a gorgeous photograph of a grandious rockscape - the weatherbeaten, old tree is my personal highlight.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much, Philine,it was a wonderful old tree,in a grand landscape,I tried to do it justice, I hope I did.
Another fine shot, Frank - great in B&W
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom,glad you like it.
