[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In one trip near Durango, I had the surprise to catch this strange colors into a lake nearby.
It was sunset time, the sky was very cloudy, covering the sun. Orange-red shades were casted like from nowhere (I couldn't see the sun) on some of the clouds, which reflected golden in this lake's water.
It was only for aprox 5 minutes, enough time for me to try several shots. This one proved to be the best I got.

I think Mother Nature was just having fun, showing you what she can be up to when she wants. Good capture and TFS

Its not just the reflection that is strange, the clouds look positively surreal too (in an interesting kind of way). Did you play with the hues/saturation a bit? Thanks for sharing!

Hi Petru,
Totally awazing colours... unreal, out of this world! I like the composition, and the golde reflection on the lake is simply beautiful

It was magical moment for sure, Petru. I'm glad that you were there and took this picture. It is simply beautifull.

I think "surreal" has been used and it fits here Petru. I like the gold waters reflection against this surreal blue sky. Well done & Thank You.

Hi Petru

Interesting variation of colours in this shot. Strange how the colour in the sky doesn't reflect onto the water.

Did you use PS and crop it?, a little noise in the sky.
