This is fabulous! Congratulations on your 2nd place in the Christmas and Holiday Tree Contest. I can see why. This is gorgeous!! Is it HDR? It has that quality. If it is, did you use software to do it or did you do it manually? Nice post treatment with the lights, too. I am in awe!
This is stunningly beautiful! And I've been there! Picnicked, dipped my toes into the cold water, in the summer of one of my high school years -- went with best friend and her relatives. And at least three people in that packed car bore the name "Louise," too. So funny!
