F/9.4; 1/60 sec.; ISO-200; overcast; canoe portage; Adirondacks, NY. The background was isolated from the boardwalk and made "dreamy" with PSP9 noise removal.

Thank you, Tammy, Jessica and Marsha!
But Marsha, this is supposed to be a little bit Scarry(!). In reality, it isn't. But the light differential and the boardwalk make it look like the entrance to the unknown void, to me. I've just realized that it reminds me of the "fun" house amusement rides I took as a kid. Well, maybe it'll be more scary tomorrow. Tune in to find out! Thanks.
