Archive Photo of the Day: Alder Lake Sunset #3


Alder Lake Sunset #3, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
Sometimes you're driving down the road minding your own business, maybe even thinking you ought to be somewhere soon, when out of the blue beauty whacks you upside the head and shakes you out of your everyday blindness. If you're a photographer, you immediately scramble for the camera, find a place to park, and spend the next half hour becoming late for your appointment as you do your best to capture some facsimile of the world's beauty in pixels of light.

I drive by this spot every day and it's almost always beautiful, with mist rising from the water, waves lapping at the shore, or the magnificent sky perfectly reflected in the still surface of the reservoir.

Check out this photo from the same set, looking down into the deep reflection of the water:
