Was going to comment on this when I saw it earlier and ran out of time. As I came back to see your gallery, this one stood out again.... incredible image, Mike. Love the stillness, how it just about glows, and are those bird prints on the railing? Very pretty. #1701088

Thanks again Michele! That was such a beautiful morning. I only saw one other person that entire morning. I think the tracks were from a squirrel running down the railing. I used a fairly long exposure to get the water to look so smooth. :-) #11665506
