I shot this photo earlier this month of the sun setting above Deep Creek Lake in Garrett County, MD. The lake covers several thousand acres and takes various twists and turns making it a challenge to find new places to shoot sunsets and sunrises and still have the sun and the clouds where you want them.
Earlier in the afternoon the clouds were very dramatic. I hoped (and prayed) that the sky would not clear up before sunset so the sun would be surrounded and result in an interesting photo.
Everything came together and I ended up with one of my better sunset photos.
I want to thank the waterfowl that on cue swam right into the sweet spot of the lake while I was taking this photo. It really added a lot of interest to what could have been an empty photo.
Thank so much for dropping in to my blog! Have a great Saturday!
