Thanks Frank. I liked the simplicity and clean character of the scene after all the glory of the cape. The sunsets there can be ovewhelming but, oddly, after a lot of them, it gets boring. Awful to say that; guess it's like living in Paris. I wouldn't know since I have never been there. Matt

That's a stunner, Matt. Amazing what reflections do for us in such images! Double the sky!

Ah yes, I understand. I'm back from Colorado, and no more mountains or lakes, just flat land with a lot of utility poles and wires to worry with...

A pleasant, simple composition though, you made do with trees and clouds quite well!

We didn't get many good sunsets while in the mountains. Both places we stayed were in bowl-shaped depressions, so the sun disappeared before it set. It was kinda frustrating. The sunrises were better, because there were some gaps in the mountains on the east side that let some light sneak in and reflect around in those basins, and off the peaks. Here is the most notable sunset we saw, not much to speak of.

Appears to be a little chilly, but yet soothing to the eye. Sunsets or sunrises can be a difficult task with the mountains as a backdrop, at least it has been for me.
