The lake was beautifully calm. The sun was setting in the west and casting a glorious sheen over the water.
Photographers tend to beaver away non-stop behind the camera to extract every last image during these few golden moments. But it's just as important to stop every once in a while and sit down to enjoy what it is that brought us out here in the first place. So, set up your camera on the tripod and grab your remote control and enjoy the show.
Indeed it is only by looking at and appreciating the sunset that we can truly learn how to best capture it.
