Well captured.

Thank you Larry, but Lake Huron sunsets are there for the taking every evening as you know. These are the same 'reedy things' that you took a shot of north of Kincardine. They certainly take over the beach if you let them.

Its like shooting fish in a barrel isn't it? Still, you have the pick the time to press the shutter. I like how the light cast on the edges of the "reedy things" - its a frame worthy shot. Take care!

George, you're being modest. There were miles of shoreline to choose from and numerous elevations the sun went through before (and after) this moment. I agree with Larry.

Thank you Hank. You always have wonderful comments. Thanks for taking the time to view my photos.

It is even more stunning enlarged, capturing all the little details of those "reedy things", as you call them. Beautiful warm colors and wonderful contrast. I agree with Hank...timing and the "perfect" spot makes all the difference and you nailed it, George! Gorgeous image and another of my favorites.

Warm regards, Julie

Thank you very much Julie. Along Lake Huron these reed grasses are considered a nuisance weed and there are signs posted about how to get rid of them. They do make for a nice photograph though.

Hi Bruce, nice to hear from you. I see you've been to the coast with some lovely shots of your own to show for it. Thanks for the visit and kind words.
