Thanks everyone so much for the wonderful comments. I really appreciate them. I captured this on Sunday believe it or not Shelly. The crowds were pretty crazy. From what you and David said, I guess Saturday was pretty crazy as well. It was just luck that I had a window to get a few shots of the couple on the bench before there were people everywhere again. I think I like the park best in Winter when it's just a handfull of die-hard fishermen, a die-hard photographer or two, and on a good day more sightings of eagles then people sightings. LOL Have a wonderful Tue and happy shooting everyone.
:) Tommy

This is so lovely, Tommy. Hard to believe that couple didn't have anyone else around when you captured this peaceful scene. The light-and-shadowplay is marvelous, and so are the Autumn colors.
