Earlier today I started getting a post ready for this evening. Yep, had it all planned but the words weren’t falling into place. So I went out to the shop and cut out a couple of wren houses Susan was wanting for this next spring. But still the words weren’t coming. When I came out of the shop, the clouds showed some signs of breaking up. At least half the time when I think that there might be a good sunset brewing I’m wrong. Still I thought it looked promising and besides, I could use the walk to clear my mind. I headed back to the Brophy Outlet. Yes, I’ve been there a few times lately and the site just seems to be calling me back for more. The light was low and I was wishing I’d have brought the tripod. But with ISO set at 200 and aperture at f/11 I thought I could hold things tight.
I was so glad I came out to give it a look. The blues were fantastic and the clouds opened up just enough to show the subtle hints of pink reflecting off of the clouds to the north and east. The western view remained dark. Then, just when I thought the shoot was over, an opening appeared for golden light to glow through. During those few moments, the reflection gleamed brightly between the ice and the old bridge. Another gift, as I was allowed to see and capture “A Promise for Tomorrow”.
