Post challenge:
Thanks to everyone that took the time to vote and leave a comment. I'm so happy that it did so well.

I was really on the fence about submitting this one because I thought people might recognize the location since my Granular shot was taken at the same place. It was actually in voting at the same time and I was worried that people would intentionally vote it down because of that. Thankfully that wasn't the case.

This shot was actually one of those happy accidents because when I got to the spot there was no one around. But right as the sun was about to come up, 3 fishermen arrived and started casting out their lines. Fortunately, the 1 guy that just so happened to be standing in front of the sun, stood fairly still for the 31 seconds I had the shutter open.

Nice shot but as with many the sun in frame spoils it,which I guess is the whole point of the exercise so I,ll shut up.
