    Beautiful shot. In the thumbnail, it looked like Casablanca or some place equally exotic.

    You did a really good job of framing the sky without detracting from it. Boom & Gary of The Vermilon River, Canada.

    Looks as if even the sky came to ‘rest’ a while.

    Love the colors, Ewok! Such a nice photo in so many ways, and it reminds me of a favorite painting of the sky through an archway similar to this one.

    Such a lovely sky, I like the graduated color, from blue to orange sherbet.

    When I first saw this, I thought it was somewhere in India! Beautiful view and coloring. I have to get down to that lake one day. I drive past it on occasion but haven’t stopped by or walked around it in a long time. Thanks for the reminder!

    What a perfect position to frame and then capture your beautiful sky. At first I could not figure where the location was….I was thinking Asia or the Middle East…BOY, was I surprised. A lovely shot. Genie
