The reflection of the sky on the water is so subtle. Nice.

Happy New Year's Day to you! Have a great day with family and friends. Another stunning photo. You always have excellent photos for the rest of us to enjoy!

I like it too. Really combines mystery with concrete, sensuality with hard absolute---great composition. You have made something so ordinary very moving.

Jilly said...

The sweeping lines, the reflections, the light, the balance, the framing - such a beautiful shot, Kim. And then I looked at all your other possibles for today and can't imagine how you chose - so many truly wonderful photographs.

Wishing you a Happy New Year, dear Kim, with health and peace and all good things. xxx

A harmony of textures, patterns and composition. Wonderful choice for the theme, Kim. Wishing you and yours all the very best in the new year!

Beautiful mood and light, the reflections of the composition are superb! Happy New Year!

Jack said...

That is a nice one. You and I both featured still water and a restricted color palette today.

This photo is quite unique...not one that I would've expected a photographer to choose as one of their best and favorite. But I like its eccentricity and the interesting angle you took on with this photo.

Happy New Year!

Kim, it is a great photo. You have had SO MANY great ones this year that your decision must have been a difficult one! Happy New Year, hope this one is one of your best!

Tamera said...

That's a fabulous shot! I enjoyed looking at all your favorites from the year. You have a great eye!

Kim said...

Thank you very much for all the kind comments and good wishes for the New Year! I appreciate it when you have time to stop by and comment, and I love visiting around all my CDPB bud's blogs. Since starting full time work this year, that has been harder to do, so I thank you for your understanding. I do view everyone's shots via the portal and wish I had more time to visit everyone as often as I used to. Wonderful work out there, and everyone seems to be getting amazing shots. . .all that practice and hard work paying off in the high quality of everyone's efforts. So, kudos to you all, and thanks to my wonderful viewers who check in every day.
Wishing you all a wonderful 2011!
-Kim
