I sometimes fantasize that I'm on the shores of a mythical land when I come upon scenes like this. The passing thunderstorms began to crack open allowing the evening sun to filter through, creating a spectacular light show that went beyond the ordinary. The preceding bad weather cleared the shore of all other people lending to the fantasy of my imaginary land.
You often hear about the fabulous properties of the light after a storm has been through, I can't argue here. The large open expanse of the lake is a perfect way to view these roving thunderstorms as they soak the far shore. Because the clouds were quite low I was fortunate to have the sunlight stream through these clouds occasionally creating god beams.
A still night completed the perfection this night. The calm waters made for excellent reflections for the mood that I wanted to catch with this light. If it were wavy I don't think this composition would have worked. Instead I was presented with a calm after the storm effect, which I feel was worth getting a little soaked for.
