Carla- Girl you are on a roll with some of the most fantastic looks. The stairs and now this amazing capture. It's just so gorgeous. Love the glow to start with, the lighting phenominal. The logs and wood are like looking into another world. Two things in particular that I love is the depth of the picture and then the fish, some silhouetted, some not. The clarity is amazing.
Girl you have outdone yourself. Fantastic work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, take care.
