Postby Matt » Mon Nov 01, 2010 12:55 am

The purpose of these challenges is to encourage us to get out and get the best shot of an assigned subject. It's a great way to enhance your photography skills.
Even if you think you take crappy pictures, please join in. Those of you just reading the forum and not posting, this is your chance to join in and show off.

Took this in July at Robert Treman State Park from the gorge trail above Lucifer Falls. It was a very humid day with Thunderstorms off in the distance.
