Weekend Reflections - Setting Sun


This was taken somewhere at a campground in Iowa where we stopped for the night. It was gloomy and overcast all day, raining here and there. Finally the rain had stopped and suddenly the setting sun peeked out from the clouds. I quickly grabbed my camera  and caught this reflection in the small pond at the campground. I am happy to say this photo won 1st place in Retirement Chronicles photography contest for reflections. Click here for info on her next contest.

Don't you just love it when the sun pops out at the end of a long gloomy day? I swear it gives some of the very best sunsets too.

Congratulations, Pat!
