    What a beautiful scene and photo, Garth. Love the high horizon, and you’ve created a fascinating, absorbing sort of abstract. I could look at this for a long time, and I usually lean toward more realistic captures. Good work!

  • Thank you Jan, I am glad you like it.

  • No its colour neutral Jan
