Hi Calrk. It does look untouched and remote. Lovely tinge of apricot but on reading your note I see that man's hand is involved here as well. One benefit was the chance to shoot against the sun thanks to the haze. Nice composition with the curving river. Regards. Klaudio.

Beautiful photo and composition, looks like something out of an impressionist painting. Perhaps the light foreground is slightly low, but also helps create some of the atmosphere with that ray of sun that illuminates some of the flowers. The overall result is quite spectacular. Congratulations on a good job.

Hi Clark. Splendid creature.I wonder if William Blake had composed a poem about the wolf as he did about the tiger burning bright in the forest of the night, how would the poem have looked.Yes, the note is sad as it demonstrates the total lack of understanding that can exist-and respect for the wildlife. In Australia the dingo is treated in similar fashion and when it becomes to "friendly" it is considered a danger and is often shot. Regards. Klaudio.

I never get tired of this view - even if I see it all the time! :-) This blue hour shot is especially beautiful, with all the lights of the city coming to life. You captured the Chrysler Building (my personal favorite), the Empire State Building, and the new World Trade Center all in the same frame, which is great. I think this photo was worth hanging around for. :-)
