I stopped to take this shot on the way to work at a bridge I cross every day. The mist was thick this morning and I got some beautiful shots. I toyed with putting this one in a different challenge but stuck with this one. I added some fill-in and adjust the white balance a little. I hope the muted shape of the sun in the frame still qualifies. We'll see!

Wow! This is only my 4th challenge and as I looked at many of the entries I thought it would be years before I got close to a ribbon. I found it very encouraging and motivating to read your comments. Thank you.

This looks unreal, in a good way. The water and sky do look a bit bland, but i feel like i have seen this on a card or something.

The fog in this picture adds interest to it, as does the reflections in the water.

Nice landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful capture
The fog causes the line between land and reflection to disappear
Good luck
