Evening Calm

Sunset on Herington Lake (Kansas) – This one snuck up on me. The evening colors were looking pretty uneventful as I drove eastward on Highway 4 last night. But as I glanced over my shoulder, toward the waters of Herington Lake, the colors intensified and were magnificent, doubling their show in the surface reflections. Out of sight, along the left shore, hundreds of Candian geese were singing.

    This is why I love Kansas so…if possible, could you add this to your wallpaper gallery? Also, have you considered adding wallpapers for widescreen monitors? Thank you for your work.

    This is magnificent. Just amazing.

    Well, Dave is so talented that he can photograph grass and it looks amazing. This scene offers it's own beauty, and with Dave capturing it it is immortalized for the rest of us.

    Just gorgeous. Cheryl is right, it's a masterpiece.

    Absolutely breathtaking, Dave! Those sunrises and sunsets are tricky. Just when you think they're about over and you just didn't get much of a show that day, the sky will light up with the most amazing colors. You have to be patient–or in this case be ready to pull over quickly. It's an ephemeral, fleeting beauty that is so easily missed if you're caught up in the busy-ness of everyday life. You've captured it here for all of us to see.
