Liquid Gold Sunset

Magical moments as day becomes dusk and the lake turns into liquid gold.  When day-end dips into momentary quiet before reaching a crescendo of night sounds. A lone Great White Egret fishes for his dinner while Alligators lurk in swamp shallows.  Motionless, while waiting for prey.

Then, with a grand flourish, Night drops it’s black velvet cape.

      Lake Martin is very close to where I live. I love spending time there!

    Before your camera captures it, this beautiful vision of yours has already set the stage. I love this connection between a photographer and how their naked eyes look at it before pressing that click button to capture.

      I have always enjoyed taking photos of surrounding scenery but blogging is new to me and I found it easier to shuffle a few words around to go with my photos 🙂 So glad you see the connection! Thank You! 🙂
