[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I just came in from walking the dog and captured this sunset over the Bow River in Cochrane. The sky was on fire with colour, the air sweet with from all the flowers, grass and trees. A rare warm night in Cochrane, normally it usually cools off to a comfortable 13C - 15C (55F - 60F) but not tonight. There is a large high pressure system bringing very warm temperatures to the area. Tomorrow is expected to be another very warm day and night. .....I love summer :)

Hi Janice
This is such a fabulous shot: colours, textures, light/shadow balance all work well together. Your POV gives us a superb natural frame. And I am most impressed by the sharpness of the result from a handheld shot.
Excellent work

Hi Janice,
This is a beautiful landscape photo! Excellent composition and very nice colours.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Janice,

A marvelous landscape, I like the very nice colours in the clouds and it reflection colours in the water. The vegetation shadows contrast very well here.
Nice ephimerous moment capture.

Loverly colours over the Bow! And look at the necklace over the river too! I would recommend a crop on the right, and perhaps the bottom too. Beautiful clouds and super Alberta sky!
Tfs, Jay
