Distant Splendor

The original subject for my shoot had been blown over during the spring storms and as the light was changing I was panicking that I wouldn't find an alternative. I happened to glance upon the small dam to my right and realise that it was in the perfect position to reflect not only the sunset but the familiar peaks of the You Yangs. I frantically refined the position of my tripod and managed to capture a beautiful, reflected image and it was only as I packed away did, I realise that the water was only there in the first place because of the unseasonal heavy rain we had just endured.
