Skywatch Friday: Sunset at Minnippi

Our local lake is only 500m walk from home and a great place to take in the beauty and serenity of sunset. These shots are from a little over a year ago.
Unfortunately due to severe lack of rain this year, the lake doesn't look much like this anymore. The section where the water lilies are is totally dry.





This is the same evening, up the hill to the right of the lake.

There are 1440 minutes in every day... 1440 opportunities to capture a moment of beauty. What moment of beauty did you capture this week?

Wow, these are beautiful! Love the colors. It would be interesting to post some wet year / dry year comparison shots of your lake. We're really hurting for rain here in CA.
