    Great photo! I took some day shots of Sylvan when I was there last year and you've inspired me to try some non-day ones!

  • Dennis Blauer

    Dennis Blauer   said (22 Jan 2008):

    thank you Amy! to be inspiration is inspiring in itself. i agree, some night shots on Sylvan Lake might be really spectacular maybe with a moon or painting people with light, one on each rock. i like your perspectives of the western wonders. it feels like what i actually experience when in those same places.
