it's a nice one, but in this part of the world such images can hardly be associated with January. :)

Well, yeah, but this is a monthly photo challenge. This month is based on the best of 2007 (the entire year). I think I took this photo in October.

Thanks! If it wasn't for the current drought, the water would fill in that entire area and it would be over their heads!

Very nice -- this would make a great desktop background. Nice work.

I fondly remember this as this was the photo that actorguy1 blessed me and chewed me out when he replied to this posting back in October. :)

Yeah, I'm just better at keeping my not-out-loud voice under control.

What lens did you use?

Hehe, yeah, that's one of the things I like about Kent. :)

Seeing as that view is quite wide, I'm pretty sure that was my standard zoom lens that comes with the Nikon D40. According to the EXIF info from flickr, shutter speed was 1/30 and an aperture of f/3.5, ISO200 and focal length of 18mm (if that helps).

That means a lot coming from you--you take some great photos. I hope you can spare a few minutes for you to share your best photo in the contest. All you have to do is drop it in to the photographers community. No prize other than recognition for the hard work.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. You have an amazing photographic eye, Joe.

I think I was just lucky to realize a cool event was going to happen and just waited patiently to evolve. Anything could have happened.

I have not been down there in awhile to see if the lake level has come back up yet. I imagine it has.

Wonderful. Although sunsets can be overdone, this isn't. The image has an abstract sense to it, which I like.

Yep, it was hard to balance the light with the darkness. I like being able to take a photo without modifying it.
