From the other side

In yet another example of catch the light when you can, I present to you this image.

sunset at the mill pond

I was at a dinner banquet when I happened to glance outside and see the clouds start reflecting the sun’s fading light.  I grabbed the camera and headed out across the way, hoping that the light wouldn’t evaporate in the 10 minute jaunt across the green.  Luckily for me, I was rewarded with a few minutes of soft, pastel light as the sun set behind the trees to the west.  I played with the composition a bit, finally settling on this one, with the bridge reflected in the calm water of the mill pond.
