This photo was staged. I knew about this place and had it planned for some time to take a shot like this when the weather conditions were right. I went there early one morning and the weather was beautiful and just perfict for the shot. Thanks for your comment.

I always wonder why blue and green colors always create such a beautiful composition. The reflection from the river just adds to the beauty...BTW did you plan for this shot, or was it taken off hand
