[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I traveled to the drought stricken hill country this weekend to view Lake Travis. Where I am standing should be under about 20 feet of water. The air was dry dry, with a stiff wind, dangerous fire conditions all around, trees dying...no rain in Texas for almost a year, things are beyond critical. The lake has never been this low. It's very sad.

Hi Linda,
Now this is a great sunset capture! The texture and reflections in the water are just stunning. The gradient sky and rays around the sun are perfectly captured here as well creating a very dramatic composition.
Just awesome! Thanks for sharing,


Bonsoir Linda,

Magique soleil couchant, mi-auréolé mi- étoilé
qui donne une superbe mouvance sur l'eau,
aux couleurs plombées et lèchée d'or.
La nature est ainsi faite de beauté dans l'attente
du meileur quant à la lecture de votre note.
Grande maitrise de la luminosité du ciel.
Cette image présente un travail soigné.
Mes compliments pour ce sunset partagé.

Hi Linda

Excellent shadow detail & I like the starburst effect on the setting sun. Excellent sharpness, color & silhouettes. The diagonal shoreline adds good dynamism. Tfs!
