    LOL! I actually use the word jaded a lot. ;-)

    Thanks, Michael, for understanding the humour in my commentary. Now I have a beef. The word "jaded" is so inappropriate! Jade is a beautiful name, and everyone I know who has it has many fine qualities and appreciates true beauty in all its forms...

    LOL Jade - Now you have narrowed my field even further! Not that I do milky water anyway :-)

    Michael, he/she/it has seen the comment so you can put me out of my misery now I suppose! (But I feel the same way about milky waterfall over the rocks in the forested stream shots too!)

    Lindy - I hope other voters share your opinion LOL Thank you and a Very Happy (and photographic) New Year to you too.
elliott - I'm so happy you said that - some people I have showed it to cannot believe the colours but that's just the way it was - fantastic evening. We had the same thought - I did try again but the haze was so dense that when the sun sank into it, it almost disappeared and the beam on the water was negligible.
Amberbug - Thank you for commenting - much appreciated.

    great consistent believable colors for a sunset. you might have tried again a few minutes later as it dropped further into the haze to get the sun without as much blooming around it. in my favs. good luck. el

    LaRee - ROFLOL. I hope Jade O sees your comment, I'm sure he will enjoy it as much as I do. I find sunsets a beautiful quiet time, people stop what they are doing and enjoy the setting sun and the changing colours. A time for introspection and sharing with others close to you. Glad you liked the composition.

    Nice composition. I love sunsets. I've said in the past, "if I ever get so jaded that I cannot enjoy a sunset image, put me out of my misery" ;0)

    Jade - I figured if I was going to put in a sunset it would have to be good or I would get the 'another sunset in 14 million' LOL. Appreciate your second sentence!
rabaak - Thank you
Old Finn - Thank you, that is very encouraging.
I appreciate the mentions of composition. The camera was right on the ground and I was using the flip open LCD back. Hard on the knees too LOL I was not fast enough to get the duck centered in the sun's reflection.
