This is stunning, William. The colors are so pretty and this view of the bridge is wonderful. I love how soft the waves are. Have never been out that way but it sure looks gorgeous...

Thank you so much the Judges for the comments. The picture is a single shot. The sky, water and clouds are all real. I did use channel mixer and adjustment layers to enhance the color.
