Thank you very much for all your wonderful comments on this image, everyone! I had a really great time exploring some Olympic National Park seashores last week. Those places, even on foggy and misty days, offer great opportunities to shoot. This photo was taken on Second Beach, one of my favorite places out there. I am really glad you like it! Thank you!

Thank you very much for your nice note, Jim!

Thanks so much, Mary! I really appreciate it!
Both of those images (they are two different) were taken of our family vacation in July. I was walking with my older daughter Anna, when I saw her reflection. Walking fast right after her I started shooting, so I took a little bit more than one photo at this moment ;-), but those two that I submitted for the contest are my favorite. I am really glad you took time to look at them! Thank you, Mary!
