Outstanding! I don't know how you come up with such fine images day after day. Don't you ever get a clunker? (Hint: make me feel better.) :-)

@GJC: Thanks very much, GJC. I'm fortunate to have a career and schedule that provides the opportunity to explore through the viewfinder. This little project has reminded me that if I put myself out there religiously, I begin to see more images. Take heart though ... with 278 days left, there are clunkers lurking out there. :)))

@Manola: Thanks, Manola. It was a beautiful setting, but with a lot of goose honking going on.

This is a perfect example of the images I like most. Perfect light with soft tones in the colours - beautifull texture in the water - great minimalistic composition (not too much in the scene).. I keep enjoying your images, Larry. Have a nice weekend !

On Golden Pond? I had to, you always have these clever references! Very nicely taken, the water is like liquid gold and the sole goose is a simplistic silhouette.
