    Weather provided a big variety of thin and thick clouds, which resulted in a huge range of colors as the setting sun lit them up from behind / underneath...purple, blue, magenta, pink, red, orange, yellow, etc...and their patterns and locations were shifting around constantly on the breeze. Just an absolutely stunning visual light show that lasted about 30 minutes...up in the sky and reflected back down on the lake water. Must have 50 shots and most of them are keepers...anyhow...there may be better ones the further I dig, but here's one as a quick reminder of what Mother Nature can do for us.

    As I said, bad spelled and that can ruin any google search.
    Actually its spelled WOW though either, except for my original spl, will do.

    Stunning. I was watching the sunset develop as I was doing yard work. I managed to get a few decent cell phone pics, but I was lamenting not being somewhere where there was water. Getting the yard in shape took priority over photography, unfortunately.

    This was the scene while waiting for the sun to drop below the horizon and the color light show to begin...an incredible amount of change in colors after the sun gets down out of sight and the rays are illuminating upwards from below.
