    Sat 7:30 AM. Admittedly not as romantic or awe inspiring as gorillas....and then there is the fact that the Belton Dam spillway isn't quite as scenic as the Rwandan jungle.....

    I don't know,...having seen a few buzzards up close over the years, I can attest to the awe they can inspire. (Read: scary-looking buggers! Especially up close.) And Belton Dam Spillway,...very exotic in the mist! So, yeah it may not be gorrilas and it may not be Africa, but these foties are impressive in their own way, Steve. Nice shots.

    Yeah, good shots, Steve. Hitchcock comes to mind...

    There is something sinister about them isn't there? Gives the image a bit of an extra "feel" if that makes sense.

    Brian says it all and I really like these. As Paul says, the mist really adds to the sinister feel!

    Anything with a Sigourney Weaver reference is a winner :p

    The first with the barbed wire and curves drifting into the mist to me is the best in an unsettling way.
    People who have been prisoners of war i can image may not be able to look at that image.
