Many years of taking photos have taught me that when you see a sunset photo you have already missed it. Despite this, driving home along the Rideau, I couldn't help trying to get a picture of the most amazing blue water against the yellow sunset. Just the time taken to pull into the beach parking lot and get down to the water, however, and the light was totally different. I took the opportunity to make this photo instead. The cloud bank is so incredibly massive compared to the river and the poor little guard chair. It makes me think of malevolent clouds coming to take over the world.
