It is not that you need more compliments - but it is a great picture. It is the kind of photo that I desire to capture. Mostly, I appreciate your humility as described on your profile. Vaya Con Dios

Thanks to all for the encouraging comments!

The title was intended to contrast the relaxing feeling of such scenery on a perfectly beautiful day versus the daily pressure and hubbub many of us often experience, especially those working in a crowded urban setting.

It's what I felt that morning as I was able to sneak one day away from international business travel...
