York in the AM
York in the AM
York, Maine about 45 minutes after sunrise. Thanks Renee for leading the way on this composition, although the cold water was something my feet weren't expecting!! :-) Lots of cloning to remove telephone lines.

Cloning...definately one of
the setbacks of modern conveniences
of electricity and telephones...
But all of your work paid off
here, not to mention what you went
through to get this...fantastic
capture Ken...perfect composition
with excellent reflections!

I like this very very much, Ken -- the repeated shapes of the houses and their reflections and the horizontal layers of different shades of blue and browns are very appealing to me. This has almost an American primitive look to it.
