... aka Sunset over Grand Lake ...

This shot was taken on the first day this year when the < daytime > temperature in all the major centres in Canada was above freezing. That means we are starting to see the melting of ice...

In this shot we see what happens when rocks absorb solar energy, and as a consequence the surrounding ice starts to melt.

I took this shot just a few minutes after the sun had disappeared below the horizon, while there was still just enough light. The sky was glowing, and in turn reflected on the ice.

While taking shots along the shore of this lake < Grand Lake > I actually went thru the ice near its edge. Luckily the bottom was not too far below...

PS I put the original photo in the workshop area.
I hated to cut out part of the beautiful sky, but tried for the 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 type compo.

This is the originasl shot before it was cropped to the 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 approximation...

In the original we have more of a 1/2 < water > and 1/2 < trees & sky > split...
