I love the way the sky is reflecting on the water. Great colors and composition.

Greetings from San Diego California,

InstinctImages - Thanks for your enjoyment of this photo. This is one of my favorite locals on the canyon to photograph as it offers varying angles for sunsets and sunrises through out the year as the angle of the sun changes. I got luck with this one in catching the strong coloration of the sky which is echoed through out the photograph in the vegetation, water, and light haze that day. This was a 20 second exposure which lends to the color saturations also. That is why portions of the vegetation when looked at closely are not sharp due to the wind.

Thanks for the greetings from San Diego, CA!

Julevna - Thank you. One of my favorite stopping places on my way home. I always look for an unusual sky or weather opportunity and occasionally get rewarded with one.
