A second posting showing the sunset at the Fraser River last night. In my previous posting from this scene Daniel Walsh suggested Fire and Ice for a title. I like the thought because the sky portrays flames of fire and the Fraser River has chunks of ice along the shoreline. A quote from Longfellow belongs to this photo.
Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden want o'er the landscape;
Trinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Wonderful capture again.Lovely panorama of the sky with wonderful colour and patterns.The reflection on the water is awesome.The snowy view looks attractive as well.The light is bit low but that is understandable.
Greetings from India,

Another stunner of a shot Paul!
I'm hoping to have such luck with sunsets while back in BC! Great colors, composition (the inclusion of the river and reflections off it), levels: nothing over/ under exposed, and the sharpness are all flawless.
I'm bringing almost all the camera gear back with me for this trip... looking forward to the TE meet!

Hello Paul -
This one really works, IMO. I like the composition with the stream working its way through the image and the reflections in the open water. I also like the seeing the detail in the foreground. Well done!
Thank you for sharing

I prefer you your second post with wider angle. Title is well chosen because the sky is really fired on this day. I found a lttle shapnening problem with a white line betweeb the hills and the sky

Good evening Paul!
Another great winter scenery from you.The magnificent, colorful sky, fantastic reflections in the water are contrasting very nicely with dark blue snow, frozen water and dark mountains. Super shot.
Merry Christmas to you and your family
