Hi Scott - This is such an emotional uplift for me today! The colour, clarity, and just the entire mood here brings a smile and an "ahh"! The sense of "being there" is so powerful here. The sunburst and colour of the clouds, with all of these exquisite reflections all around and onto the chapparal and (looks like) monkey flowers is wonderful and so rich. I really love the cloud top layer as it is spread across the valley and we see the dark and teh light of each "fog top"...shadow and light....You have always told me and others to look for the have found it here and I have it twice: Once in this image and once because you bring it to us in your kindness! Cheers sir!
