I always felt "sunrises/sunsets" was a beautiful topic, but "islands" is turning out to be a beauty also. Good job folks!

Thanks, TomT. It was one of those surreal mornings when there are so many incredible places to be at one time. If you look closely, there's a distant canoe to the right of the island -- 7MonthMan was paddling and taking photos too.
