Beautiful find. Your eyes and the ability to capture this beautiful diagonal composition, through your precise camera angle has made your vision a perfect story telling venue. Add to this the color and direction of light and the texture and detail --all has made this a beautifully captured moment in time.

Thank you for putting a smile on my face first thing in the morning with this wonderfully captured moment.

Congratulations, Boyd, on your wonderful story telling and your POTD. #8746050
