    I'm sure you've heard that this is an award winning image before me, but I'm going to write and let you know that this artist in Vermont would LOVE to create a painting of this photograph. It's absolutely stunning, and I would love the challenge of recreating with my paints.
    Thank you for sharing this on your flickr page!
