Dude, that is some picture.  I'm no photographer but I bet you didn't take that on no dern cell phone.
And what a rig!  Thats some leather man, and of course the Rem.  Fine outfit and no mistake.

In addition to leather and steel...I love lichen.  Great photo of the sample on the rock just below your rig.
At least in CA, ya have to be way up high to find such good samples of that stuff (Xanthoria I think).  Great photo in manifold ways, you're a real contender for that bee's wax boy!

Way to go.

What C. said +1.  Modern day kids just seem born knowing this stuff and natural talent never hurts.

Swathdiver's kids do well.

2012 1858Remington.com Photo Contest Winner!

                              *********************************************************************
                                 
                                  Photo By: Freedom
                               *********************************************************************

The first thing that grabbed my attention with this photograph was the colors! The blue sky, the orange lichen's and green grass. The next thing was the great background of the hills and sky and the forground of the rock with lichens. And finally, my attention was drawn to the focus of the photo and crown jewel, the 1858 Remington and fine holster and rig!! Over all, a well thought out and well composed photograph. Well done Freedom!!

I want to thank all of you that participated, you posted some outstanding photo's, it was alot of fun to see your Remmie's!! Thank you!!
