We'd had an ice storm and I was on my way somewhere and knew I'd pass this little stream by the side of the road. Sure enough, it looked very pretty, and as I took the camera out ... deer appeared! Totally made the image, and the moment.

PP - converted from RAW (Nik HDR), cropped, Nik CEP (tonal contrast, reflector efex in silver, glamour glow), saturated deer a little more, resized, Nik Sharpen.

Beautiful, delicate scene. The deer are perfectly understated. Mysterious presence across the stream.
