you've certainly captured the feel of this place, sends a shudder down my spine just thinking about the possibility of being locked away in a place like this.

cheers

Nice shot! I was there in 2010, this shot totally captures the feeling you get standing there. It's an incredible place to visit.

You should stop by Rawlins, WY if you get in the area. The state pen is now a museum. I was the only one on the first guided tour of the day. The next one had 20 people.

Bob, I like color! I spend huge amounts of time trying to get the colors just right coming out of the camera! This photo would not work in color! It's absolutely perfect in B&W! The angle, lighting and tone are perfect! I love it! You made my day!

You certainly captured the feel of the prison. I toured one with the inmates still in it and it really something you don't ever want to have to do. They are a scary lot especially those on death row who have nothing to lose.

Glad the shot does the prison well, Yes a great place to visit but a terrible place to stay. Thanks for looking, Bob

Charlie, there was a big prisoner revolt because they stopped supplying red solo cups, the prison finally gave in and now they are common in all Montana prisons. That is what I heard anyway.

I seem to remember a thread you did on the prison Kyle, we have been in the town a couple of times, but never visited the state prison. I will put it on my next time through "to see" list. thanks Bob
