Last week I got a shot I had been dreaming of for the better part of 20 years. It happened again yesterday morning. Maybe not the twenty year part, but close to it.
Once again, I started out with doubts about whether the 30 minute ride to see that the sky was still heavily blanketed in thick clouds was worth the fuel and time. But I did, as I always do, and things worked out better than I imagined.
I’ve always thought there would be a nice image here and yesterday morning it happened. I made several captures with the intent of doing this in HDR but, in the end, I only needed one. Another roadside attraction.
If you click and look very carefully, you might notice some rich red maple leaves in the middle of the right hand side. I toyed with opening the shadows a bit more to make that visible but decided against. The sky and its reflection don’t need any help.
