Day's end.

Uploaded: December 02, 2006 14:37:41


F/11, 3.2 sec., 64 ISO, 1 stop GND Cokin filter on tripod.
Color of the setting sun breaks through the lifting storm to light the peaks of Mt. Timpanogos. The scene is reflected in the quiet water of Silver Lake in American Fork Canyon. This shot taught me to be patient, I had given up and was putting away my gear when the light suddenly changed.

Very nice. I thought there would be some ice on the lake this time of year. Actually I'm surprised that the road was open and you could get there. More adventurous than I. #3683783

This shot was taken in late may when the lake was full of runoff from melted snow. Too bad this lake is almost dried up in fall when the color of the surrounding trees along the shoreline could be reflected in the water.

I really appreciate all the comments.
