An excellent image Colleen !! We have had hard and consistent rain right through the night and it is still pouring. I want to go down to town and see if the river burst its banks yet ! Fortunately we live on a hill so flooding does not affect us Smile

Love the soft light in this, Colleen. What a dreamy image. And that colour! Well composed too.

As always, what attracts me most in a shot like this is that creamy bokeh...soooooo nice.
