Absolutely stunning.

I really wanted to capture this too, but the clouds blew in at the last moment and all was lost.

Thank you for posting this treasure!

I think I could just sit and gaze at this for hours. When I first saw it, I thought it was a watercolor painting. The colors are so beautiful.

I am blown away by the composition and everything else about your photo. I really appreciate your sharing it. Thank you.

I shot at 1600 ISO, so there is a lot of noise in the original. That filter makes for a softer image, but that seemed to be okay for this shot.
