Cook's Bay/ Sky Watch

Last evening on Cook's Bay

There was a lot of action out on the bay yesterday evening and these guys were in a hurry to join in. It sounded like fireworks out in the distance. Duck hunting season.

Simply divine! The delicate leaves on the branches point downwards to the silhouettes on the lake. Perfection! Should be enlarged and framed and hung on a wall!

How can duck hunting be associated with such a beautiful scene. This is a great capture of the sunset and its reflection on the water.

Dharma Shots said...

Oh wow, this is a truly magnificent sight. I love the silhouettes.

Francisca said...

I was feeling pretty mellow admiring your well-framed silhouette against the orange sky... then I read B Square and cracked up. He's so right, though. Happy sky-watching, EG.

Gwendolyn L said...

Very beautiful orange, golden, yellow picture of the sky and the lake. Lovely.

eileeninmd said...

Beautiful colors and a gorgeous capture.

Al said...

That looks so peaceful and beautiful. It's strange to think of lots of gunshots disturbing everything.

RedPat said...

It makes me think that I should get out of the city more often - but not when it is duck-hunting season I guess.

LV said...

I enjoyed your entire feature for today. I really am impressed with fishermen shot.

Indrani said...

So dream like, beautiful picture.

SandyCarlson said...

Very, very beautiful.

J Bar said...

What a marvellous scene.

amatterofhowyouseeit.com said...

Gorgeous light, framing and silhouettes.

Kathy said...

It could be two separate photos!

Wanda said...

What a stunning photo. I'm loving it.

Ann said...

If it was Cooks Straits New zealand, it might not be wise for the men to be out in a small boat at night.

But your's is Cook's bay in Canada, so i guess it is alright.

Luna Miranda said...

i love your vantage point...it's like playing hide and seek.:p beautiful and neatly framed.

Rimkogeren said...

Thanks for your comment :-)
Beautiful picture. Makes me wish I was there.

Reader Wil said...

Brilliant photos.They look like the beginning of a mystery movie. Very gorgeous colours! Thanks for sharing.

NatureFootstep said...

nice composition in this evening shot. :)

Arija said...

A wonderful evening and sunset but the duck hunting is not really my cup of tea. Fishing yes, shooting no.
That's really just me.

Greyscale Territory said...

Beautiful, magical tones of light round the silhouette shapes!
