Outstanding image, Ken. The powdered sugar coating adds great textural interest while hiding potential distractions and driving all attention to the design of that great tree against the rock. Congratulations on receiving an award for this one. It's very well deserved.

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
