Amazing picture and science lesson! It's also true that the colors take a very special intensity just in the moment of sunset, if you look in the other direction. I often noticed that, before nature slides slowly in darkness. Very subtle colors and beautiful point of view chosen. A very subtle shot and a most interesting note.
Have a nice weekend

through your continuous experimentation, also a appreciable result, splendid glance and photo materialization, even if it transmits a painting sense query of filters, for me a fun of landscapes, this is an excellent work and photo!
keep photographing! TFS

This is another stunning landscape photo. The colours are gorgeous, the clouds add good interest to the sky, everything is nicely reflected in the lake and the composition is great.
Fabulous capture and TFS

Hello Emma, Happy New Year!
It is good to know that you are up and about and back in action.: )
This is an amazing scene, not only in its beauty, but also by all that it incorporates and shows so well. Thanks for the fascinating note.
The soft purple-pink, the arrangement of the clouds, the reflections, make for a lovely composition.
TFS. : )

Hope life will be good there and there will also be some respite from the weather. Yes, a good science lesson it proved, at least, for me as I am a student of literature.Your extended note is quite clear in putting things through and I noted that the trees to the left hand corner of the photo are still a bit drenched in the western glow which means you were facing away from the west and to be precise, were facing east. The dark beneath the pink is the earth's shadow to the extreme right hand side of the photo. Hope I have not confused you the way you felt that note might sound confusing for us.....lol. Really enjoyed the scene and something new which I was not aware of, being a student of humanities. Thanks for the valuable information....take care...warmest regards/Abid

magnificent landscape with excellent exposure, composition and POV. Nice vivid colours and cloud formation reflecting on the calm water with very balanced light. Great and interesting notes: thanks.

A terrific post and lesson on the phenomena we sometimes see but know nothing about! Similar to you, i didn't know all these things before but have seen (and maybe even photographed) them before. By the way, you explained them well in your own words..good examples, too :)
This is a lovely capture, as well, and it's indeed the clouds and their reflection that catches your eye. The longer shutter speed ensured a smooth lake, thus making the atmosphere more tranquil.
Last but not least, i really like the small patch of brighter and colorful trees at about 1/3 from the left, so nicely reflected and lightening up the scene a bit...a lovely bonus!
Overall, top job!
Cheers and TFS
PS: there's something wrong about the links both in your note, but i saw it to in your profile's description. Here it's the Workshops that lead back to the post and there it's the one to your website that leads back to your profile page on TN...don't know if you knew this, but if not, i thought you might want to :)

Looks like you have mastered the long exposures very well. It certainly made this shot special. Of course the beautiful cloud shapes and the reflection of the late light did help as well. The colors are truly amazing it you were lucky to have them during this sunset. It doesn't happen that often and when it does it is only visible close to the horizon. The composition with the single rock and the curving shore line is fantastic.
Ooops, almost missed this one! Wow. The lengthy exposure has given the clouds an almost airburshed look here, the colours are vivid but still natural looking and the composition, as always, is first class, although if it were me, i'd have perhaps given that stone more prominance in the FG, but hey, that's just personal choice..:o)
As for this phenomenon, it is something i've heard of but never really understood until i read you notes, so for that i must thank you!
Bet you're glad the white stuff has gone - although there may be more heading our way...

I finally have found the time to visit your gallery again. I was absent from TN during the last few weeks. And I didn't want to be in a hurry because pictures of such a high quality like yours need to be contemplated with plenty of time.
It's a pleasure to dive into your landscapes and to free the mind. Your pictures are full of deep expression and awake emotions. In this picture here I particularly like the peaceful and serene atmosphere. Everything is in harmony... and that's the impression I want to take with me for this night.
Many thanks and kind regards
I am sorry, I do not understand the phenomena. But I know, the resulting image is dream-like.
