  1. The deserted place, where no human voice or laughter can be heard, completes for me the idea of the coming winter. Meanwhile, the sun rays and their reflection on water give optimism: something new is going to happen this day! A great photo, Doug!

  2. Great picture Doug. On first sight I thought this was a deer buried under the sand whose antlers seemed to be crying for help above the surface!
