That water looks definitely like a wonderful miorror! Beautiful detail and sharpness (as always) in this gorgeous B&W, Steven! The last time we had any snow of any decent amount was in the middle of October, for heaven's sake! Since then - NADA! I heard Curly refer to their weather over there as an extended Autumn...I think he is absolutlely right - we are getting the same deal here in PA/NJ and parts of New York State...I love this one, Steven - great piece!

Beautiful work Steven, magnificent view, and the avenue of trees keep on continuing
