Stunning - a magical time with the light as it is and the low hanging clouds. Congratulations on the HM, Richard.

Beautiful shot Richard! Love the details in the bigger sized version, I so wish DPC would increase the size limit!

It's just no fair having such beautiful scenes to work with :)

One thing I would suggest trying is cropping out much of the bottom, so the moose is basically touching the bottom of the frame. That would give a more panoramic feel, that may work well here.

Great scene, bet this is really great in a larger size, nice color range and the clouds in the sky add nicely to this
