So beautiful...your shot pictures such peacefulness! And the play of light on the water...this is brilliant! I absolutely love this one!

Mojo said...

Simply superb. I don't even want to say very much... it would seem irreverent somehow.

You really put the wordless in wordless with this one David.

David,
I can't even begin to understand what it would take to produce this.
Modern cameras see to give us so much comfort; but they do not know how to compose, or create. That's your forte, and you're generous enough to give us little tutorials.

You are patient too!
