Default Gallery: One-Armed Monkey Shots

Well OK! Chris has laid down the gauntlet!

But what does it all mean, really? Is a O-AM shot a nicely lit scenic mountain shot, albeit not PCA level? Is it a simple basic wedgie that someone took at a location where everyone else takes their time and gets the grand image? Or is it in fact a silhouette SC, yellow/orange background sky, destined for greatness, so, so easy to take out west, you can almost take the lens off and just wave the sensor at the scene? Who knows?

So the floor is wide open, whatever fits your personal vision of the one-armed monkey shot! Let's get to it!

I myself have not taken many west of Denver shots, and alas I am probably that one-armed monkey, except wearing a sling. so here is a station wedgie, could just as easily have been taken here in the east. And then a shot I stick in the forum over and over because I like it, didn't think about it much at the time, just shot, just like a monkey would!!!, and since we are talking WEST well, here we go again!
