There is something very tragic about this... I love photography that resonates.

Rachel, thanks for stopping by and for your comment; but I must ask, why does the word "tragic" come to your mind when viewing the image I posted? Granted, the viewer's interpretation is at least as important as the photographer's, but I took the picture to evoke feelings of "calm" and "serenity"; certainly not tragedy?!? Just curious.

I find this photo very relaxing. Reminds me when I was in Japan a few winters ago. The overcast in this shot is also great. The tree with the never ending branches are perfect...Please feel free to check out my newly created Blog and follow me as well so that we can exchange feedback :)
