A pristine view of Eppley Island from a hiking trail in Northeastern Pennsylvania

Every morning I hike Shumans Point - a Northeastern Pennsylvania wooded enclave. The trail skirts the shores of Lake Wallenpaupack. At one point you get a majestic view of Eppley Island. The island is different every day depending on the light, sky, weather. This photo is untouched other than minimal cropping. I could not imagine I could take a photo which depicted the perfection of the island, lake & landscape that particular morning.
