Both are beautiful shots.

Would be curious to see them compared to what they look like once the snow starts melting in Spring

Happy Shooting

member since: 11/6/2006 Love the composition of the one you posted, Ken, with the V of the sky almost meeting that of the river. The light is lovely and the portrait crop dramatic. I like the other just as well -- has a completely different feel, doesn't it, with the blues dominating and the sweeping curve of the river that leads the eye in and around the bend.
