Beautiful monochrome picture, EG. One thing is for sure though.. I wouldn't want to try to walk on that ladder above that grate... ha

You've got the first monochrome that I've seen this week. I've heard the word sluice more this year than in my entire life. Interesting texture to this photo. Thanks for the map showing the location of EG! Maybe I should do that too!

Glad you liked the church in the tobacco field shot!
