Sky Above, Earth Below

These photos are a combination of the sky above, earth below, and a reflecting lake. I was driving past Lake Nockamixon in 2015 and was struck by the golden glow, visible even from the road. I turned around, headed down to the lake, and was met with an awesome scene that I can still remember vividly. I haven't seen anything similar since (even though I've tried), but these photos are too good not to share (again).





I wish you could have seen it in person, as my photos don't come near to doing the scene justice. I was passing the lake at just the right time and the glow from the near-setting sun on the trees and the reflection was simply incredible. I spent nearly half an hour along the water's edge, taking photos, lying flat on the ground to try and best capture the reflections, and just enjoying the views. What a treat to be in the right place at the right time, and be privy to something so awe-inspiring.

  1. These photos are beautiful, and I can imagine in my mind's eye how glorious the scene must have been in person. Those fleeting moments of dawn and sunset are so brief yet so magical. Thanks for sharing them with me.

  2. The trees are trying to see their reflection in the water as they have never seen themselves to gloriously dressed. Nature is full of magical moments and I thank you for sharing this one with us.

  3. You should take one of the pictures and 'invert' it. I've done it with a couple of pictures of mine and if the water is 'smooth' you can get away with the picture still looking 'normal', or almost. :) Lovely color! Helen
