Were you the gunslinger that got shot in the opening seconds of that B movie western.
Frank L Croston.: No...
This is the exact landscape of so meany westerns that we watched as kids.... and beyond. A very nice shot, especially the shade from the tree.
Frank L Croston.: It was rather unreal seeing it for real,Mary...smile Thanks.
wow Frank...This is quite beautiful..The tree can acutally be classed as something else
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke.
What can I say, magnificent image Frank, if I show this at my club and they don't like it I might as well pack up there and then.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks ever so much,Brian, I was quite pleased with this,I did like the tree,the shadow being where it was,was a bonus. smile

A cracking shot, Frank. I like the framing of the butte very much with the love old bristlecone pine.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Alan,I had to climb a way of the road for this,but the pine made it worthwhile.
So that's what you were taking when you walked up there! Fantastic- I'm so glad you thought to do that! Next time you're here we'll have to look for a hat & boots for you!
(I don't mean to be a know it all - but I'm afraid Alan is mistaken- bristlecone pines don't grow at this elevation and have a completely different shape. This is a juniper - probably a Utah juniper. End of lesson). smile
Frank L Croston.: Know all!
