As the Sun Goes Down

Delta Lake State Park

Not everything is a monochrome image. It appears I have been on a little B&W streak lately. What can I say, when it fits the image of the vision in my head, that is what is created. Like this one, it is mostly about the colors of the sunset.

It was cold that evening. By the time the sun dropped below the horizon my finger tips were almost numb. And this was through my gloves (I think I need a better pair of those). Although the water in the lake had not frozen over the moisture in the sand created a very hard packed surface. The water in the foreground is sitting on top of the sand, it isn’t that the sand is saturated.

I really liked the layers of colors in this one. The sky obviously is soaking up the remnants of color from the setting sun. The water stands in stark contrast as a layer of opposing blue and then we return to the colors of the sky reflected in the foreground. Cold, but still worth the effort…
