  64. Beautifully shot — lush colors, great light, and nice sky reflections. The bottom image is my favorite — great leading lines, with weirdly angled reflections of the poles, and the deck seems to float [it does, in fact]. Happy B-day O.

    November 15, 2013 at 15:48

  65. Beautiful shots to celebrate his birthday!

    November 15, 2013 at 16:45

  68. The skies are splendid, the mirror finish of the lake is magnificent, the sunset colors captivating – but they all pale beside the shining star of the show, the always handsome and delightful Oscar. (They do serve as splendid backdrops for him, though!) :-)

    Happy Birthday, dearest Oscar! May you enjoy all your favorite things today, and many, many more summer sunsets by the lake!

    November 15, 2013 at 18:25
