Hi Walter, I thought I'd drop by the new site and have a look! You can let me in on the secret: did you crank up the saturation, or was it really this red. Either way, the image is great.

It was pretty much just as you see it. The sun was just above the horizon behind me. I was standing at the bottom of a boat ramp, down a hill. The hill had lots of trees to block the sun from hitting me. The reflection off the clouds illuminated these trees like a forest fire. I'd been to this place many times and never caught exactly this effect. On this day I was extremely lucky!

Planning really does pay off!
