Awww, why isn't this a gorgeous shot!
How often do you go out for sunrises/sunsets?

I love how you captured so many different elements here, especially the way in which they all work together. The water for one looks so beautiful, it reminds me of the days where I would have to ride the school bus and in the mornings, while I was blasting music out of my headphones, I would gaze out the dirty window to the lake we'd eventually pass. Some days the water would be rough, other times it'd have this beautifully calm look to it, perfectly reflecting the sky and trees and looking just like a mirror versus actual water. But, enough of those musings.

I love how it's this patterned look, like someone has dragged their fingers across it in plaid patterns. The way it reflects both the pink and blue is lovely too, reminding me of cotton candy days at a festival. It goes so far in the distance too, which is especially neat. What sort of area is this? Is it like a lake or a swamp or...? How do you find these places, too? Do you go exploring often or hear of them from other people?

I like the distant transition of the water, how it seemingly turns into that perfectly clear mirror =] I also like how you captured the trees here, they're so neat, all different shades of green, looking all big and fluffy, like little angry old men :giggle:

I also like the the look of that flat, light green field in the distance. It seems like a countryside sort of place, probably even neater for photos there too ^^

Then of course, there's the element of the green reeds [?] to the right of this photo. I'm so glad you decided to capture that here, because it truly adds the perfect touch. They look very beautiful, and almost as if there's some light upon them - were you working with flash or is that from something else entirely?

The sky of course is the best part of this shot. It's so beautiful, all those purple-blue colors, fluffy and pink and oranges. I always underestimate the power and brilliance of clouds, something I have to constantly remind myself when I see photos such as these or I just so happen to run into them with my own eyes.
The muddy look at the front of the photo is nice too, it almost makes me think you had to lean out to get the shot :lmao:

But yes, this is a beautiful shot indeed. So loving, as if the moment had its own caring touch as it laced across the sky. ^^
What inspires you to go out for moments like these? I find myself continuing to make excuses Px

Great, great job!
Was the sun located further to the right or was it somewhere mixed in behind the clouds of where this frame is?
Also, is that a house or some dock or something across the way? It's definitely an attention grabber for my eyes at least! XD

thank you for the in depth comment it was a pleasure to read :) i really appreciate it! :)

i go out looking for nice sunsets every chance i get if i think the sunset will be nice. sunrises not so much because there arent as many nice places around here for them.

and i never use flash...i just dont like the way it looks in photos. and i did have to lean out near the water haha i usually always have mud all over my shoes when i go out to take photos

what inspires me to go out for moments like these? love, and life i suppose. since love is an absence in my life, the beauty of nature fills the void...

its a lake, a manmade one but still a lake. that object on the far side is some type of water dispenser, it helps water flow from the lake to the streams nearby.
