What a fantastic roller coaster for the eyes! Wonderful lighting, composition, color and detail!

Isn't it amazing how much can be said within a little rectangular 2-dimensional space? And there are still people who want to argue that photography is not art!

Congratulations, Stefania, on your beautiful photography!
