This is an exquisitely beautiful image, a master's presentation of color and light and movement and imagery... I could stare at this for a very long time. It is just utterly fascinating, brilliantly composed, beautifully colored, and engrossing. Did I mention it is a favorite?

How utterly wonderful.
