hi Danilo

Very well defined reflection of such a wonderful scenery showing a glow of light in the clouds and the row of trees with the except of the beach sand, everything is almost like a symmetry.

Very well captured mood of the morning.

Happy Easter!

Hello Danilo,

How good to have you back with us!
This is a very beautiful scene.
The colours have a rich, moody impression.
The light has created silhouettes which are so smooth, they could have been made in a mirror.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
