Just the fact that yuo were up on Whidbey Island makes me jealous as you know what!! Fantastic colors here, Jack - my favorite element is the pink light reflecting off the little waves in the foreground and the lightened submerged stones as a contrast.....just a brilliant composition, my man! As jealous as I am, I can't wait to see more...bring on the coming year!!
