i had no idea that the last few minutes of yesterday were going to produce these.

this interesting shot was taken about ten or so minutes before my burnt sky posts from

yesterday. my fingers are in the water, cradeling the camera.

i have been posting shots from this location for a month now and needed something

fresh. a new perspective. it was cloudy and nasty ALL day.

i was painting a west facing wall full of windows and all of a sudden it was like POW!

i mean, it had been the same light (dark) all day. i scrambled. i had about fifteen minutes

to get what i could and live with it. no re-setting. i shot over 80 in that time frame, all

at different angles from what i heve been shooting from there. i gambled.

it was quite dark. i overexposed as much as i could and not lose the color. hope i won!

i like the soft colors in this one.. i think they work well.. the silhouette works nicely too... i keep wanting a little more foreground, but its still a pleasing image..

This is really nice. The reflections and ripples in the water are very interesting.

I've been away a while but now I'm back. I really like the low angle you've gothere, which leads to a greater ripple effect (I assume). Not often I see shots taken that close to the water.

You know what? This and the others from this series would make a great set on the wall. Progression of night thingy.

i think i am going to try dale's suggestion and set up a progression as soon as i have

time (maybe later tonight)

hopefully i have enough of the same angle to be cohesive.

thanks for the idea, dale.

and to all of you who went out of their way to pull this shot from a couple of days ago

and comment, it's stuff like that that keeps me striving to shoot better!

to all of you, sincere thanks!
