Magnificent. I visited this place quite a lot of years ago and I liked a lot. Here it is the magic of the reflections that operates and catches the eye.

What a fine view with those grasses serving as a foreground, does not look at all like America as I envisaged it, more like India!

Extraordinary piece here, Stephen! The light and sky are wonderful - you caught this at just a perfect time in realtion to the disspating (my guess) fog and semi-diffused light that happens during that time. And yes the grass is a superb foreground element which has colors that compliment so beautifully! Great great piece here sir!
