Oh Nikki, what a beautiful scene. I love the sky, the reflections of it in the water, and having the silhouette of the guy on the rocks just gives one the sense of height and depth. So well done. #1651481

Carol Eade level-addict March 09, 2016

Beautiful, Nikki. The silhouette gives a sense of scale and love the sky, reflection and tones. #11444611

Yup, love the silhouette at the top, and the arrowhead like shine on the water below.... :-) #11515358

Thanks Shirley, Carol, Emile and Bob. I was honored to have a Finalist on this one - this was a young lady and she really was up there, not posing for me, just looking. Though this one got a Finalist in March of this year, I decided to resub it this month (September 2016) because I think it's perfect for the Monthly Theme category: On Top of the World. #11515362
