Beautiful photograph! If you don't mind some criticism, I think that the horizon line divides the picture too evenly in half, and that your image could be improved by moving it up (cropping the sky)a little.

Thanks so much, Shirley, Janet, Debra, Terry and Susan! (Terry, yes - it's a VR lens, hard to be spontaneous with a tripod and a wandering heron -- I was wading in salt water, rocks and deep muck!)
