happilyretired said...

Hmmm ... must be out of practice because my comment produced an error just now. Trying again ... this is a beautiful view from the end of the pier. I enjoyed catching up on previous photos here too since I've been on vacation myself ... driving to and from Taos, New Mexico.
Hugs and blessings,

imac said...

Super shot James.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

This is such a beautiful picture. I love the reflections of the trees and the clouds and the peacefulness of the water. Ahhh.

Silly question maybe - but if there are 95 entries why are there only 61 comments, counting mine? Maybe they commented on a previous post...I appreciate the opportunity to play.

Take care & God bless.
