The photograph was taken when I came across a view right before sunset and in the north storm clouds where gathering.
The overlay of the reeds in the wind still bathing in the late sun and the darker sky in the distance always gives me a feeling of awe as this ethereal moment unfolds. That sweet and sour moment always infused me with a profound melancholy as the fading of the warm sun gives way to the cold night.
