I sympathize with your situation. I hope you'll get the power back soon.
Oh my ! Things are looking a little bleak on Whidbey Island :-( Poor Lyle :-(
Thanks for the consolation. BTW, I live at the north end of the island. Apparently, the windstorm that killed our power also killed the cable lines. I got my old generator running yesterday to salvage the freezer full of food, but the cable modem was a no-go.

I took a different approach to this challenge. I imagined what it'd be like to be above the top of those waterfalls on the other side of the valley, looking at the photographer. It took a bit of work in Photoshop, and I'll admit to doing a minor sky replacement, but I think the results are convincing.
Update: Power restored a few minutes ago, and cable is running too!
Only problem with conceding is that I would have to pick it up as the runner up!That's great news. Almost civilised then.
Thank you for the win - it was a tricky pair of images. I agree with the BW sentiments - there's just too much going on IMO.
It's early here. I'll find an image for a new challenge in a few hours. I am of course happy to concede defeat in the event of any perceived injustice owing to judging equipment failure.
