Evening At The Lake

Outside of Niwot, Colorado

Light, it is what we all chase for, the perfect light that turns a photographers surroundings to pure gold...light, that causes drama, atmosphere, and intensity. Light so warm it breathes and comes alive...it's even better when you stumble upon an unsuspecting place like this here...and the light is working it's wonder. Processed in HDR, output through Photoshop.
Hope ya all like it.
---John

John this is a beautiful shot. I have to agree with you on your comment too. Light can be our friend, our truest companion in a shot, it can bring out the true beauty of a shot, like this one. It can also be a harsh, hateful thing that tears our shot to shreds with glare and spots. We as photographers have to find the patience to wait for that beauty moment. In the process we get to see so much.

Great layers within the shot. You can almost feel the textures through the photo. The sun is a little bright, but gorgeous nonetheless because it gives the shot this golden tint to it.

The horizon is really interesting, with different landscape elements. And of course, to capture such beautiful gold... takes talent.

Wonderful colours! such a lovely view, and the difference in the brightness of the sun and the dark cloud gives it such an atmosphere

I sometimes feel sorry for you having to live in that hell hole you do. Having to deal with all that nature crap. Huge mountains in your way all the time. Ugly freakin' sunsets... I really do pity you.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr... so jealous!!!!

Nice shot John.
