Thanks so much everyone for all your wonderful comments and support. Also thanks to Nick for helping me out on this one. As Terry said, Nick is a wonderful friend and mentor. He has helped many to realize their photography dreams. Also thanks to the judges who saw this worthy of 2nd Place. I am really honored considering all the incredible photographers and photographs here at BP.

My daughter has just had a new baby, my first grandson, so I'll be heading up to Portland, OR for a couple of weeks.

Thanks again Everyone!!!
