Thank-you Eckart, Annemarrie and Bogdan for your kind comments, I really was surprised to arrive home and see this image on the screen, the sunlight was in my eyes when I took the photo and I was just not sure what photo I may have taken

Thank-you Roger, The pink line caused by a cloud was captured by the camera but not seen by my eye, I was trying to capture the color reflected by the water, I was very pleased when I arrived home and discovered what I had photographed, thank-you for your many kind comments

Imaging direcly into the sun is not easy and can be dangerous. So it worked well. It is unusual, because the sun is barely pink but the reflection is only pink. The benefit of partial light reflection by the water surface!
