    Love this minimalist landcape Laurie. The tranquility of the view and the line of the horizon are hypnotic, I think my blood pressure just dropped a notch! Great composition and framing, I also love the view that includes the shore!

  • LOL…oh, good, I’m glad your blood pressure dropped a notch! Exactly what was intended!! :))) Thank you so, so much, Joanne!!! :)))

    I agree with Joanne about the tranquility you captured in this view – a zen-like moment.
