So I was hanging out at the picnic area at the Monte Sano state park close to where I live, and I came across this bad boy. Let me know what you think!

Great capture. Looks sharp and lots of contrast.

Good to see Monte Sano represented. I also live not far from there and like to take my kids hiking on the trails there.
