You have the most amazing eye, Stephen. Great POV, and the light, well, it's a "joy."

@Magda: Hey Magda - it is so good to hear from you - I hope all is going well. Thanks for the detailed visit to my blog. The lens on this was my old stand-by, the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L series - my favorite lens. The image was shot wider. It went through considerable tuning in Lightroom and then perspective correction in Photoshop.

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Thank you Stephen! I love that lens too! But I know it's the photographer behind it :)
