If I lived in an area like this where these type of photo opportunities might arise, I would have a TCON-17 attached to my camera... or an Oly C-210.

Do you have any Post processing software? Photoshop CS or Elements?

Someone gave me some good advice. Try decreasing the brightness about 5-10% and then increase the contrast by the same. It's sounds contrary but it seems to bring out the color and detail slightly. Don't over sharpen that just seems to bring out the color speckles and graininess. It's a pretty darn good photo the way it is. I would stress over it too much. Keep you eye out. You should be able to get some more terrific shots.

Thanks Smac, I have elements, I'm still in the process of learning how to use it. I will give your advice a try. Stay tuned
