Spectacular scene, Courtenay. Beautiful photo. #9722407

Laura E. Swan 10/9/2011 10:16:49 PM

Oh, yah. Now THIS is really stunning too! Courtenay! You are blowing me away and I am so proud of your work! Okay. Here's the deal; keep posting winners like this, (and the others), and I will set up a travel agency on a nearby corner. We will make a gazillion dollars, drawing them in with your images. Then we will be able to afford to -BUY- "Two Jack Lake" and live there forever. What do you think? (HeeHee!)

Okay now seriously, I can so feel the peace and quiet of the morning here. Those bolders are placed in perfect hormony in your frame. The placid water and our ability to see the bottom of the lake really set this off. You are teaching me another valuable lesson about photography. GET OUT OF BED AND GET DOWN THERE! GET THOSE WINNING IMAGES during the time most people are sleeping and the birds are still yawning.

YOU GO GIRL! :D I hope it goes GOLD! Stephen Z if right. You should make calendars! (And sell them at the travel agency! HA!

-Laura :)

Amazing capture. Breathtaking. Hard to find the right words to describe something that's other than an emotional reaction to an image...evocative for sure.
