Solitude at Peace Valley Park

It looked like this guy had the whole lake to himself and with the exception of some birds and a deer I was enjoying the wooded shore to myself.

    Dear James,
    Wonderful picture and so peaceful moment.

  5. I love your framing of the sailboat and the picture as a whole...the brilliant white sails show up so beautifully. The shoreline grasses add just the final touch to a magnificent photo!

  12. I will join the chorus here and sing praises for your composition adding that the contrast of the silhouetted foreground tree and reeds enhance the balance and add such delicacy to the scene. Another excellent shot James!
