    Yeah, I'm not sure I'd call it a sunset picture. :)

    I do like it though. I think part of what makes it so interesting is the depth illusion created by the very small aperture. It's really quite striking to look at. At first it appears that the river is more like the runoff from a puddle next to a small boulder. Then, the grass becomes more apparent obviously debunking the first assessment. Then, realizing it's a river, the small boulder quickly shifts to being a huge land mass. Of course, neither is true.

    This is really a cool photograph.
