This was taken way back in 1992 or 1993 with an Olympus OM10 film camera. It is just outside of Leadville, Colorado. All the editing was done in Topaz Simplify. I kind of like the black and white painting look.

Long before the white man and long before the wheel, when the dark green forests were too silent to be real. Light foot 1967

It does look like a painting in B/W Jimbob. The building makes a lot of difference(positive) here.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

I love those clouds and the building looks like it might have been a school house. This would make a great album or cd cover JimBob.

Life's moments are sweet. I just want to capture all that I can of them.

I really like the editing on this and it is nice to see an older photo seeing the light of day again. It is a lovely scene and has good tonal range. Altogether delightful !
Thanks for putting it in the BWC

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
