Love your sunset in suspension, with the silhouette of this elegant bird near the shore. I really have the feeling to be on an island, deserted and heavenly.

Steven - This is another SPotlight image in my opinion. I love the "Edward Scissorhands" finger hold on the sun...beautifully conceived, Steven The presense of the (looks like a Heron to me...or perhaps a large Egret) along with the totally astounduing colors, reflections, textures and tones, sends this image soaring into the stratosphere in terms of concept, composition and beauty....This is really awesome Steve!!
