  1. I can feel what it must have been like to stand where you stood. Beautiful reflections and the light… Very nice feel to this.

    • It was a very brief scene: one minute it wasn’t there, the next it was gone, but beautiful while it lasted.

    • Actually, evening, about 8 o’clock. The sun was setting at the right and the good light on the scene didn’t last long.

  4. And, it sure was this time. We get this bright slanted light at night only once in a while. I can it the in between time.

    • One of the odd things about this was that it has been dark and rainy for a week now and the sun suddenly appeared just as it was setting and stayed just long enough for the photo.

      I knew the light wouldn’t last long and so I shot with the lens I had on the camera, the 60mm one that I use for wildflowers. Turns out it’s a pretty good 60mm lens besides its macro capability.

    • I guess it pays to wander around at all times of day with a camera.

    • That’s what happens when you take a camera along when you go fishing!

  10. What luck for the sun to coincide with an absence of wind, allowing the mirror-like reflection. Lovely.

    • Thanks! I almost didn’t try the shot because I had what I thought was the wrong lens.
