These pictures were taken an hour after dawn, so there should have been plenty of light. But a strange thing happened. In this perfectly clear sky, a VERY heavy front came through, and for 15 seconds only a sliver of sun gave it's light.

These images were taken during that short period until the sun was finally obscured.

I think black and reflections can give some great effects. Nice shots Amigo!

I like the scattering also.....the dog must have went to introduce himself:-)

Nice captures with the shimmering light and silhouettes!

Excellent Dave! That gold light shimmering behind the birdsilhouette is wonderful! I'd like to see more of the water and shore in the frame but I know your limited with your deep space optics.... :G

Yes, these are more or less full frame. Some of them ARE completely full frame. Cropping was minor. I was walking in full daylight when the light started to change. By the time I was set-up, it was getting dark. 15 seconds later it WAS dark. Each shot is at a different speed, from 1/2000, to the last at 1/400. Even so, I was shooting AT the Sun.
