Q: Story of the week

A: Do you know?

This is my favorite shot, I loved the way the sun was just tipping the snow, making the pinkish glow, and the reflection was awesome.....I tried so hard to capture EXACTLY what I saw....and it was pretty close!

This was taken approx: 7:15 am

    Read your comment re the wire. I'll mentally edit it. It is a grand shot even with the wire, the light is perfect and the absolute calm of the water provides a wonderful reflection. (any bass in there?)

    Very beautiful. If I may I'd like to suggest a slightly tighter crop - at the top take out the power line (as others have suggested) and at right the bright tree trunk that straddles the edge and draws the eye out of the image. Then you'll go from "incredibly beautiful" to "perfectly beautiful" :)
