Thanks so much, Ann, Chuck, John, Rudi, and Patrick! As for the name, residents had not decided on one. When filling out the application for township, they wrote "Uncertain" in the blank for the name. :-) #11701538

Caddo Lake has been on my bucket list for years and just looking at this spectacular capture makes me want to forget everything and start packing my bags, Janet! :) Excellent clarity, light, comp, reflections and colors! Love the bald cypresses draped in that wonderful Spanish moss. You captured the unique and very beautiful "flavor" of Caddo Lake perfectly!

Reynaldo D. Reyes level-classic June 07, 2018

I second Val's comments, you've presented this lake so beautifully and I'd hope I can visit someday. I would not be surprised if this bags the gold. Great capture Janet! #11706366
