Surrealscape

 
Our granddaughter running along the shore of Lake Huron at sunset.
 
It was our first trip to the lake this season. I was really hoping for a spectacular sunset, you know - with the sun being a fiery ball of red, with clouds in shades of crimson and hot pink! 
 
I was a bit disappointed when I saw that big white sun, no clouds and a calm lake, as the sun began to set.

As we sat watching Beep running along the shore, that big glowing white ball, and mirror calm lake was producing some pretty darn amazing effects...surreal.
 
I hauled out my camera and started snapping pics. I didn't have very high hopes about the outcome of the captures, but clicked away until the sun disappeared on the horizon.
 
When we got home, I loaded the photos onto the putter, and was quite pleased with the results. I must say, I love my Canon T2i, the photos are so true to the real thing!! This photo is not edited other than cropping and resizing.
