This is a shot from Legion Lake in Walthall. It was very serene and quiet when we were there an there were no other people around, save for one fishing boat way off in the distance (not pictured here). There was a nice soft sunset behind us that created a great smooth gradient of warm to cool colors. Always try to photograph not only the sunset but what is on the other side of the sky from the sunset, because you never know what you might see.
So yesterday's sunrise didn't quite work out for me as the sky was way too clear. However, it just so happens that I was out and about in Webster County yesterday and was taken to Legion Lake which is just outside of the small community of Walthall. I found a nice little spot where the lake bends and I was trying to capture this old dock that still had some posts in the water, but it wasn't quite working out until I got a shot from this angle with the sun beaming in from the right and lighting up the posts and the trees on the opposite side of the lake with a nice yellow glow. The colors and glow it created almost look fairy tale like. Didn't need a ton of post-processing on this photo, it just kind a worked. Here's to hopefully cathcing another sunset tomorrow in, also in Webster County.
