Life Imitates Art

I did a long winter’s evening lake patrol the other evening. It was one of those around zero Deg C, windless evenings where you don’t mind being out if you’re suitably dressed. I had the 170 – 500 lens fitted most of the day, for the fun of using a lens in total manual. After uploading a few hundred night photos I found this beauty.

The moment I spotted it I was reminded of the Monet Sunrise painting. So, when Cheri set this week’s challenge I knew Lady Serendipity had thrown me a winner, again. Of all the photos I took while doing my pond patrol this was the only one where I captured the red reflection as crisply. A few swans had just passed a minute or so before so there was still the slight ripple on the water when the car passed in the distance to supply the light…

Need the help of a car going by to give me a Monet moment! Life imitating art! FUN!!

  2. Such lovely colors. I, too, know the joy of being outside even when it’s cold and there are often amazing shots to be found.
