Photographed yesterday morning at Sloan’s Lake in Denver, Colorado. There was something about this scene, absolutely stillness in a before dawn glow as the moon was setting over the front range foothills. It was so quiet I could have heard a pin drop and I loved every minute of it! Backed up by a Fotodiox ND 9, Grad ND and CPL on my Sony A550, I wanted a composition which showed part of the pier which I felt worked well in breaking up the lines within the scene. I hope you all like it as much as I do!
