Thanks for all the kind comments, I know the power lines sort of ruin it but I couldn't clone them out.

A PB for me too!

That looks like a good place to put the power lines underground , sure messes up a nice view!

Beautiful shot. Pity that there have to be power poles and wires everywhere.

The long exposure on the water was a great choice to softness with the sharpness of the background.

Nice image overall, power lines are a bit distracting from the rest of the image.

Nice shot, take the power lines out of it, and could have been taken a hundred years ago.

Love the effect of the water! Hate the darn telephone pole lines! Oh well, I guess it shows old AND new! Great shot, nonetheless! *7*

I love how the water is so white and it looks almost like floating fog.
