Wetlands Dawn by kkart Wetlands Dawn by kkart
Here is a recent photograph from yesterday morning out at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge This is an image that I have been really wanting for awhile now but the light always eluded me so I jumped at the chance when conditions allowed it to happen. The amazing sunrise lit the whole area up in shades of golds and oranges and the subtle reflections of color just was the icing on the cake. Finally got an image I have been chasing after!

:bulletblue: Sharing is caring!--My rules for using my images I ask that you respect my artwork and my rules when sharing my images. You are more than welcomed to share my artwork anywhere you like, however I do ask that you do NOT remove my , alter my image in any way, shape or form and that you link back to where the image came from, in this case my site on DA (though my personal website would be ok as well) That is all I ask. Thank you!

Reflextion is perfect. The reddish colors give the feeling of being in a savannah.

The light really is beautiful, but (though I don't know the location) I would have aimed the camera higher, trying to catch more of the other side than all that grass in the foreground. I feel like it's distracting from the main subject.

Nope, wouldn't work, you'd have some major distracting elements then inside the photo. I wanted to emphasise teh leading lines of the composition as well :)

I saw the thumb on the front page and thought "That looks like John's work."  You have a very unique style.  This is gorgeous!  I love the colors!
