I took this on Xmas day on the Oregon coast. The wife and I were staying at Rockaway Beach and across from where we were staying was Lake Lytle. The very misty morning combined with this lone Bufflehead gave me that very peaceful and alone feeling. It was very calming.

love the tranquility of the image and the bufflehead just adds the perfect accent to the image. Beautiful. Looks chilly there :-D

I completely agree with Michael's comments. I love misty/foggy scenes, and you've captured a beauty! I think the crop is perfect -- just the right amount of clear sky & water at top & bottom right. And I'm glad you kept the bufflehead separated from the reflections -- makes it stand out nicely.
