Dennis, congrats on POTD. This is exquisite. Such a warming glow on the water and rocks. You expect such at sunrise or sunset, but there is an extra something here that you normally don't see in other photos. Well done.

Most excellent work Dennis! My first thought was.... did he get his feet wet?!! I live in El Dorado Co., and took shots of the American River when it flooded last week. Just as I was getting that angle shot of a rapid, the water crested and came up to my knees! Congratulations!

you wisely and creatively...added an un
usual element to this kind of pics :
