    Gorgeous scene – wonderful for the eye to look at…
    Would be great to see this shot at all 4 seasons. Could make for a very interesting series. Cheers Tula…x

  • Thank you, Ulla! Love it when you visit. :) I’ll have to explore that concept…I have one from winter with ice and snow still covering the lake, but it’s not a very strong image otherwise (IMO). Maybe I’ll post it later or just wait for another go of it when the snow returns. :)
