"Visions and Reflections"...

Almost 20 years ago, I photographed this sunset with a slightly different vision than what you may think. The layers and gradations of clouds provided a great texture in the sky, but while reflecting at the water's edge, I had a new end-vision of a photograph. What you see here is the vision I had while photographing the sunset. What you may not realize is that I photographed this upside-down to achieve this result. What you see as silhouetted reeds on the right are actually reflections of the actual reeds. Everything you see, excluding the ground at the bottom edge are reflections in the water.
Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome!
