This proud, painterly procession of luminous clouds was captured on June 25, 2012, at 8:06 pm, just as the last, low rays of sun spread across the water.

Only this spring have I been able to enjoy this sunset-lit scene, which changes nightly. In earlier years, a big Box Elder tree blocked my view. Fortunately — or sadly, depending on how you look at it — the tree outgrew its roots and blew down during Tropical Storm Irene.

    Ron, beautiful photo. The warm clouds enveloping the end of the lake create a serene setting and a sharp contrast to the distant, dark clouds.
