With SWF not even opened - I'm pretty sure for this to be one of the top images of this round. A masterpiece, Scott!

Thanks for commenting on my SWF. Your photography is amazing and even more so for me at this moment, coming from Jakarta...where my daughter is right now watching those Indo sunsets in J-city. She just went on a safari this weekend, and I am awaiting her photos.

Arija said...

Coincidence is a myth, you and your camera were obviously meant to be there at the right moment. Thousands could have seen that and not had the know how or clarity of vision to recognize the gift they were given.

Jules said...
