I'm not much of a landscape shooter but the other evening I noticed how the sun was setting and shining directly on the yellow-orange leaves of the trees behind some of the buildings at the end of the lake, so grabbed the camera and fired off a shot. Actually, I'm glad I did, because that night we had a lot of rain and wind and many of those leaves are now gone.

Thank you! I had stepped out on the deck for some reason and when I saw that scene I knew I had to capture it, and that I had to move quickly, too, as the light was slowly decreasing, Picked up the RX10 M4, which was sitting nearby on a table, and hurried out there to get the shot. I was rather pleased with how it came out.

Two of the eight Hooded Mergansers who were swimming around on the lake the other day; don't know if these two are a "couple" or not, but the black-white-and-brown one staring at the camera is male, the one with the unruly reddish "hair" is a female.
