Really nice shot of a beautiful spot Tom. Regards, Chris

I love this section of the park. Not as crowded as the overlooks and just as stunning. Add in the autumn colours and it's magical. Thanks for those kind words Chris.

All the best from Virginia, Tom

The wonder of creation is always a joy to capture Massimo. Your country is filled with beauty as well my friend. I've seen it in your images. We are both blessed. :)

lovely striking work Tom..i can imagine Butch and Sundance stood atop here ready for the big jump :)

Tom on November 11, 2008

Cheers LM. Appreciate your words. Butch and Sundance would have to be either very brave or very stupid, or both, to make this leap. :) Best regards, Tom

Awesome set of new photos Tom! Good action shot of the guy shooting the waterfall. Great fall colors in this one.

Tom on November 11, 2008

Thank you Bruce. I've been going to Great Falls for the last 40 years and I've never seen anyone go over this drop, the largest at 33 feet. Really a crazy thing to do, IMHO. :) I appreciate the visit and comments.

Best regards, Tom

Proper moment and perfect composition, Tom!. I like your saturation – this time increased both by you and autumn :-) Have a nice day! Virginijus

Tom on November 12, 2008

It does help if the seasons cooperate Virginijus. :) Many thanks for those very kind words.

Best regards from Virginia, Tom

Great Tom. A perfect photo. -Andy

Tom on November 18, 2008

Thank you Arden. I'm glad you like this shot. It's one of my favourites from the day. :)

Andy- So good to hear from you. I appreciate the nice comments, but in my eye, far from perfect. :) Hope all is well in the heartland.

Best regards to you both, Tom
