    Stuart, your stuff always has that extra bit of mojo… that green through the foreground transparency of the lake adds a veil of reality that is both radioactively sinister and glowing lichenly beautiful at the same time.
    Either way I love that it makes this gorgeous sunset so engaging compared to the gazillion others that have passed through this site.
    Cool work mate !!

  • Cheers BB, I so totally love the word mojo so thanks for slinging that in, and as for the radioactively sinister and glowing lichenly I tip my dictionary in your direction and raise a glass :)

    Very calming scene. The colours of the sky reflecting on the water, along with the trees, just makes it.

  • Thanks very much Karen

    You’ve gotten such pretty colours in that sky, Stu! Love the whole scene, and the vertical framing!

  • Cheers Mel, I used to come to this town once a year through work but not anymore. I always found myself drawn to this little pool there tho

    I do like this sunset very much , great with the green in the foreground , adds a great contrast , makes a change from the traditional sunset colour scheme !! Beautiful combination !

  • Thanks very much, the colours came from an early start in May (possibly around 4.30 or so from memory).
