This is taken at a wetlands a couple of miles from my house. I come here on a regular basis if conditions look good but I don't have time to get somewhere else. As sunset approached, I noticed some great clouds forming. This looked promising but the sun was pretty low so I had to rush and find my gear, making sure not to forget the tripod plate or card still in the reader as I have done in a rush before.
I raced across town (it's small), got to the parking lot promptly, and ran the half mile or so to this pond off Tomichi Creek I thought I might get a good reflection. But it was kind of breezy. Then, as the sun was just about to disappear the wind died down and it all came together for the shot. I love it when that happens!
