Obviously worth the trip, Ken!!! Butchart Gardens has one that is similar but not photographed here as often as this beauty. Great capture as usual... would not expect anything else when I visit your gallery. I haven't been around much lately... trying to spend less time on the computer & trying to make more face to face connections with people. I'll be back.. can't stay away forever.. too many wonderful people here. :) Happy Shooting, my friend!!!

Love those lines and the colors. I also like how you left the branches fairly dark, as they really stand out that way. This has a very abstract look to it. Congratulations on your win. #11110933
