To capture a little of that beauty and wonder on camera is immensely satisfying....isn't it, Bill?? That's really a picture to die for!!! I'm really impressed by your depth.

Absolutely gorgeous Bill! You've got an eye for stunning compositions! And it does look like you guys got horrible flooding over there. I'm glad things are getting back to normal! You've sure made the most of it with these beautiful shots! -K

Well Bill...
Stunning, graphically beautiful and still dramatic..
Love the fog lifting with hints of blue sky..the trees refection in the water..and the muted blue fog in the right of the photo!
You are so able to connect brain to eye to compose such remarkable and memorable photographs..

So Bill, I guess you've kind of caught on by now that opinion has it that this is a most spectacular photo--hands down, we all love it, it better be Photo of the Day pretty darn soon or there's something wrong in BP-land.

It really is a most wonderful photo Bill--you've really created a most special image here. Congratulations.

What a terrific image, bill!! I thought I had commented on this...maybe you have one similar??

Anyway, I've been away for a little over a week and am glad to be back home. Particulary since it's much colder in Canada!! Was a few days past peak foliage but I shot other things...what else does one do?? Big congrats to you, bill! Well deserved!

I posted a shot taken just before sunrise the day before.
It was almost colorless, quite gray.
