Okay, this is actually a three camera post :)
This past Tuesday afternoon, I was walking near my house, when I glanced to the left and noticed an amazing sunset. Unusually, I didn't have my camera handy, but I had to try to capture it, so I used - sigh - my phone :)
I got home, and things were really getting interesting. It looked like the sky was on fire! So I grabbed my point-and-shoot camera, and took a shot:
That's when my ever-helpful husband pointed out that there was a great reflection of the sunset's colors in the flooded valley below our house. My point-and-shoot doesn't zoom all that well, so I reached for my beloved Canon Rebel, which has a lovely zoom! First I tried using it to get the sky itself, but with the lens I was using, I was already pretty zoomed :) Still, it brought out some interesting detail:
And finally, the reflection in our simultaneously flooded and snowy fields. This is not a very common view for us, here in Israel!
Whew, I think that's about it :)
