    I darkened the canyon area as it just was to light in color. I picked up some daylight florescent bulbs that scew into regular light sockets and just started playing around with them in reflectors last night. Here are a few pics. Hope you enjoy.

    Ken, Wow you really have done an awful lot of work in a very short time.
    It wasnt that long ago i recall a bare corner and a mock up where that mill is sitting :)
    (was that june or july? )
    The work is first class and the pictures are great !! (one day you'll have to teach me how to set the date on my digital camera, i'm still shooting 2003 pictures ) :)

    Now, lets talk about some Elk horns for that Shay shall we :D

    Many thanks for the kind words. Clark I hadn't thought about a how-to but I took several pics as I did the fall and bridge. The water was the easy part!
    I will see what I can do for you.

    Todd, well I can't remember the exact time-frame but it's been about 11 months from pencil drawings of the layout till now.

    Like the idea about the antlers!
