Summer's Pause

This was magic hour; the light was beautiful; the lake calm. In the quietness, summer paused.

Finding the right angle for this image was important. My aim was to have the best clarity in the reflection while catching the evening's setting sun on the dock. I moved around until I caught the best of both and began to shoot.

Having the dock use up 2/3 of the frame was also more interesting than half or all. Finding the right balance for the composition also involves moving around until we catch it.

  1. You also created a wonderful illusion of a double-decker platform floating above...the sky? the water? A beautiful photo.
