Happy Monday, and I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  Here in the northeast we had the classic summer combo of absolutely beautiful weather mixed in with some nasty storms.  This shot was taken right after some t-storms had passed just before the sun set.  I had to scramble to catch the last of the color, and found this spot not too far from my house.  By the time this long exposure was finished, the color was fading, and I was hopeful that I had managed to get something good.  Fortunately the 2 minute exposure really helped to bring out the colors in the sky and the reflection in the water.

    You timed it perfectly Steven. Got some great soft color and the long exposure got some great movement in the clouds.

    What a beautiful image, Steven. Awesome colors and reflections. Great timing on this, some of the best skies are often after a storm as things settle down and begin to clear. Excellent!
