The Water Caught Fire!

Silence 
"The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire."~Pamela Hansford Johnson~  
The silence was so loud one could hear the grass grow! Last evening our golf cart expedition set out a bit late around 7:15PM. We only had a short period of time to capture the quiet. It was as though the earth took a deep breath and held it the entire time we were about. No breeze to be had, yet warm and comfortable. Many homes scattered about the golf course, not a sound to be heard. The insects held off on their evening melody, croaking frogs lay silent, chirping birds home in their nests! A feather falling may have been detected! Mother Nature was taking a nap! Eerie but very beautiful we forged ahead. Hubby at the helm!
No wildlife to capture and a bit disappointed, when suddenly the sun saved the day and bid us a fond farewell in very grand style. 
It is wonderful how it happens day after day, repetitious yet unique each and every time if we only take a moment to notice. 
Have a wonderful day!

Fantastic image. I peeked through your blog a bit...we're not far from each other. I caught some great skies this past week-this one reminds me of a week ago Monday. I'm wondering if it was the same day.
Great subject for red, and beautiful silhouettes and reflections.

Absolutely stunning shot. This should be featured in one of those "Golf" magazines....wow. I love how you were able to capture the reflection off the water...beautiful and what a great capture of a wonderful memory, when "Mother Nature" stood still.

Bright blessings,
