I'm glad you posted an 'oldie' because I hadn't seen this one yet, and it's a stunner. I love the light in it, it's gorgeous!

This photo is really full of movement. It evokes feelings, nearly a bit sad, perhaps the colour? But, that is what you want with your photos, to stop and look and see and feel! Great photography.
