This is a marvellous shot with the light and the rain. So different to those magnificent pictures you posted recently. But in a way, Ilike this one more!

It's fascinating to see the ribbons of rain coming from the dark clouds and the muted background.
The play of light on the water is absolutely beautiful.

This is just lovely, Scott. I like the purple tones and the composition with the rocks works so well. Like stepping stones, they lead my eye thorugh the photo. This looks like Sand Harbor? But you say it is the North Shore. I am intrigued!

Wonderful composition. The rocks are perfect. Did you have to move many of them to achieve this? ;-)

I love Barbara's comment.I was thinking the same thing. But indeed, the way you have "positioned" everything in this photo - I mean everything works together in a harmonius way, Scott!! The f16 water reflection, especially to the right and upper part of the frame, the spots where the rocks are situated, the tone and color in the, you can take this frame and split it into 3 or 4 photos and each one would be a winner....but put altogether this image is just simply outstanding. And thank you for taking me "home" to Tahoe at least for a while
Also thank you very much for your feedback :-)Bravo sir - Denny

Beautiful twilight image Scott. Evokes a lot of peaceful emotions. With all the rocks present, I like how you found this cluster as a focal point.

The shape of the shot impresses more than the colouring, especially the very strong rocks in the foreground. This looks a wonderful area to explore with a camera.

So beautiful ... but Scott, it just isn't FAIR, that you live where you have access to such gorgeous scenery. <grin>
I know there is beauty everywhere, but just how many Gulf of Mexico shots would you like? :D
