Thank you for the comments; actually I waited 4 years to apply for a copyright. I only did so when I came to the decision to post it online and get some feedback prior to offering it for sale. It is a photograph, taken with a digital camera, one October afternoon in the Valley of the Gods in southern Utah. Several art galleries in Houston, Texas have expressed an itnerest in exibiting it but I have never taken any steps towards doing that until now. I would like to add to my collection of photographs as time and money allow.
