Very interesting colors coming from the rocks. A unexpected slurry of hues and color.

'Sometimes Nature has a surprise in store for those patient enough to be there when the show begins'

Evening during Summer is one of the best times to be out in a landscape. The long heat of the day is finally cooling down and all creatures great and small begin going about their night time routines, including man. Most folks are in camp starting fires and dinners with the pungent smell of woodsmoke and charcoal in the air. Their kids are running a muck in a last ditch attempt to harass the parents before settling in for the night.

On the lake though all is quiet. I am sharing once again with a few fishermen who are having no luck. There are clouds to the West blocking the last of the afternoon light. The lake and the sky have turned a beautiful turquoise blue; it's really stunning. Occasionally, the Sun peeks through a break in the clouds illuminating the landscape. I am waiting for one of these breaks but it turns out I am waiting in vain. The clouds have become too dense and there will be no sunset this evening, only a deepening blue that will soon transcend into night.
