    Devils Bathtub . . . Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota

    A couple of photos from our Devils Bathtub Hike in South Dakota, absolutely the most peaceful hike (and fun) that I have ever been on. Again this tested my inexperience in shooting in dim lighting. Please feel free to comment.

    This next photo was taken in Spearfish Canyon as the sun was going down.

    This immediately reminded me of Ansel Adams' 'Merced River, Cliffs, Autumn' (1939).

    Some people might think I'm crazy. I know this one is in colour, etc., but just have a look. This is a very good image on so many fronts, but particularly composition.

    Lovely images, Kathy.

    Superb shots, especially 2 and 3 - you've caught the light perfectly so not so inexperienced as you think.

    Thank you Kaye, I consider myself inexperienced because it is not automatic yet . . . when I can pick up my camera and I automatically know what to do that is when I will consider myself experienced! Thanks for looking and for the compliment!!

    No Kathy, I don't like it I LOVE IT, it is, it is, it is, I cannot find the words.
    The fact that you did not include the little "waterfall" does not take anything away from the sheer beauty of this wonderful shot.
