You know Karen, many of us go to look for these subject and some like I, luckily manage to find similar fences in water, but not many of us manage to create wonderful images like this. A Y* from me for it, I love it! Congratulations, Herb

PS All the Best for Christmas and the 2010, Herb

Hi Karen, It,s very satisfying when a photographer can see a photo in their minds eye, and then later achieve it as you have done. Excellent. Best regards, John. UK

Hi all, sorry for the late reply.

Many thanks, Angel, Hubs, Viktor, pivatana, jesus, Herb, Sam, Herb, John, Gabe, Holger, Cris, first I would like to wish you ALL a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy Snappy New Year

All your comments are very overwhelming and Herb thank you for your YS and maybe I was just lucky, this time I know what you mean finding fences in water and finding the right composition.

Thank you Gabe for understanding, and for saying I did a fine job as moderator, same goes for you. I found 5 minutes time off the computer, to chill out and take this photo for you guys;))

Thank you ALL again, your comments mean the world to me.

Thank you John I see an image in my minds eye and I try to achieve this, how did you know this?;))

Seasons Greetings, Karen.

A dreamlike shot Karen. The masts of the overhead line are annoying me a little bit (just as wind generators). Just now seeing something which is worth to be photographed, there's a mast or a wind generator in the background...

Karen James on December 29, 2009

Many thanks Markus, Nikos, pivatana, Fai, Derek, ulrich for all your overwhelming comments you all have given, and thank you all for your appreciation, like I appreciate yours. I understand just what ulrich is saying, it can be annoying, I see them in other photos sometimes it's best just to ignore them;)) but I'll take what you said on board.

Thank you Derek and Nikos for your BEST OF I really appreciate it;))

Happy New Year to you ALL, ~ Karen.
