I left the house quite late tonight and if there was any color other than blue in the sky, it was very faint by the time I had reached my shooting destination.

And I enjoy sitting at the water’s edge when it’s so still that the trees on the far bank reflect on the glass-like surface.
A picture made under these circumstances requires time: Time to perfect the focus; time to frame the scene; a lot of time with the shutter open to properly expose with the available light. To make sure I captured the scene the way I wanted, the process was repeated several times.
Although I didn’t see them until I was finishing the images, with the time it was given my camera found some of the first visible stars – a bonus find. Here’s one of the finished shots:
But most importantly, with the time I was given I found the perfect amount of peace at the end of another day.
