Patti Coblentz June 14, 2010

Good morning, and thank you everyone for youe nice comments. I was wondering if anyone might think this is an IR image...the tree actually has white blossoms and it is a simple, probably too dark, blk/wht!

What a beautiful moment you have captured here, Patti. It feels like morning to me, perhaps because the geese seem to be greeting the sun. Anyway, the light rays are wonderful and the tree so vibrant.
