Sunset Afterglow and Reflection in Inverness

This Inverness is located in Baltimore County, Maryland (USA) where Hurricane Isabel hit harshly in September, 2003. This photo was shot in late August as part of my work on a review of Fujichrome Velvia 100F on

I shot the first part of my roll with a 35mm/2.8 lens on the camera, but I decided to switch to 50mm in midstream. At first the reflection of faintly red clouds was not strong and I almost gave up. When I was walking back to my car, I saw the afterglow spread by additional reddened clouds in the sky and decided to continue shooting to complete the roll. The striped pattern of light and dark water in this twilight photo was created by ripples or tides coming from the cove head which is to the left of the photo. I managed only 6 or 7 frames while the ripples were progressing and this one was the best. The camera was the Olympus OM-4TiBlack with the 50mm/1.8 lens.
