I love that shot Deirdre. We don't have anything like that in our part of the world and to see the smoke/steam rising out of the water must be great. Nice balance to the shot.The clouds are from the steam where the water is hitting the fresh volcanic flow. You can see a red glow in the clouds near the left edge of the picture. The bright spot on the right is the rising sun.
Thanks! I know, it's sort of large, so the scroll-down bit is somewhat irksome.Got to scroll up a bit to see the moon. Lovely colours.
Owch! I know about dust spots, esp. once one's arrived back home with thoughts of how perfect the shots just taken are going to be.One last shot from Oak Park from yesterday morning. This one is the first I took in the series and is pre-sunrise. I couldn't decide how to work this one as there was a single bright star in the sky and wanted to keep it. The star was perfectly reflected in the water. Only problem, with so little going on in the sky, it meant too much empty space so the star in the sky got cropped out and the reflection removed.

If you compare it to the previous shot - notice pre-footprints too! Play spot the dust bunny (knew I forgot something)
Yep, but I didn't mention it because I am an old leftie at heart.Say, does it look to you like the building on the right (what's known as Century City) are leaning about, oh, 7 degrees to the left?
