|Off to the right, as one enters Groton Long Point, CT, thereís a large cove. I went there in the early evening two days ago to see if I could spot an egret that is sometimes standing on a rock. He wasnít there that evening. I noticed that the sun was rapidly sinking over the wooded area on the left of the photo. I only had my long zoom on my Nikon DSLR, so I got out my little Canon camera, which has somewhat of a wide angle, and took a few shots when the time seemed right. In the photo Iíve posted, the center of the image is glowing from the sunset behind the wooded area. The reddish-orange color was undoubtedly behind the woods also, but it could not be seen since it was so low to the horizon. The poles on the right of the photo are holding the electric cables for the trains that travel between New York and Boston. I made the shot from behind a couple of interesting looking trees. I hoped that their leaves and branches would stand out well against the blue sky and the calm water.|

good hand of lights and contrasts between the objects black shaps in first and the colorful sky
Absolutely beautifull landscape. Contrast and color are great. It goes to my favorites. :-)
Come and see my gallery.
I like the silhouette of trees against the blue sky. Plus the reflection of the sky in the water is so pretty and colourful. I think the interesting trees might be a species of Sumac as they have a very unique leaf pattern. This looks like a very pretty spot.
