Daylight savings time accounts for the fact that just now the sun sets right after I have dropped Sabine off at the swimming pool at night (shortly before 7:30h), and nature offers us some great sunsets of late (it is about time, eh ;)!?!?!). So yesterday I could not make myself leave the house without my trustworthy Canon Powershot in my pocket, and yesterday I decided to go look for where the river floods all the meadows around it. After the snow we had and the thaw there just is too much water there right now. So I tried to capture the setting sun's reflection in those "temporary lakes" ;).

The colours were more intense on the night before, what with the storm that had preceded the sunset, but I also like the "temporary lakes" ;).

Thanks so much to all.
No sunset today.
For two reasons: a) it was raining all day and there was no sun (and no eclipse to be seen, either :irked: all day, and b) Sabine has a cold and I say "No swimming! - so you can nip this in the bud until you leave for training camp, much rather than ignoring the signs so you get seriously ill in training camp, far away from us, ourselves being even further away (i.e. at the Meet-Up in DC!)" So sorry. I think my next photos up here to come will have to be the ones from New York and the meet-up...
