Reflecting Pool at Sunset

I thought, and Rob Hardy seems to agree, that this photograph, which appeared in Sunday's arboretum walk collage, deserves individual attention. This was taken from the wooden footbridge just inside the entrance to the lower arb (that is, Carleton College's Cowling Arboretum) near the tennis courts, looking southwest. The sun is still casting an idyllic glow on the soccer fields beyond the trees, while this calm area of the little tributary of the Cannon River created a perfect mirror for the happenstance symmetry of the silhouetted trees. If you click on the photo to see the full-size version, you'll feel you are there in the scene.
