Creek reflecting twilight


I didn’t take this photo today, but right around today in 2007; I’m posting it because I passed the spot where I took it and it looked just like this. It’s humble Chartiers Creek looking dignified and mysterious as it quietly winds between its banks into town and back out, gently reflecting the late winter twilight, street lights appearing one by one, bare trees standing sentinel on the banks and hills.

I have always loved this time of day with just the reflected light of the sun below the horizon, as the shadow of the earth creeps up from the east toward the western horizon. Even the clouds catch the gradation, though a few here are still touched with the fire of sunset.
