Bill, I saw this last night just before retiring for the night. How on earth did you happen to be there when the heron parked himself right in the arch? The shot is beautiful without that, but the heron clinches it. I love these little gifts the Lord gives us when shooting. Congrats on the gold! #9377202

I shot this bridge early in the morning before the fog lifted, and the Great Blue Heron stands his silent vigil.
