The tendril of a late afternoon thunderstorm creeps toward a mountain lake in the Rockies where two floating anglers try their luck before the rains fall.

  6. what a captivating view across the lake! what i like most is the colour of the water and the patterns on the surface. reminds me of the lake next to the magic door in the mountains in LOTR ... (i only hope there were no monsters in it ... ;-)

  12. Beautifully tranquil scene Doug--I really like your choice to make this a water-heavy composition. Not sure I would have thought of that.
