In the lake near the rental condo we rented for three days, I went down in the afternoon to see what was happening at the lake along with the conditions in the area and wildlife behavior and habitats.
I was able to get photos of the dragonflies, some macro insects and geese and ducks on the lake. I was noticing some behaviors that the geese were doing on the lake while I was photographing them.
The next day, I did some kayaking on Lake Lure. I am well at doing kayaking since I have done it many times in the past. I have done white water rafting in Arizona, the outer banks of North Carolina and now kayaking in the mountains of North Carolina.
The next evening I went back to lake Lure to see the sunset and photograph it over the mountains that surrounded Lake Lure. The mountains that surround Lake Lure are called Bald Mountain.
The conditions the night I took the sunset where partly cloudy and humidity was over 50 percent to make some good photo opportunities to do sunset photograph while I was there. When the sunset started occurring I immediately went down to the water to start experimenting what i could use a foreground and subject matter for the photo opportunities I wanted for my sunset photos over the lake.
This one in particular was the coolest sunset picture I took while I was there at sunset on Lake Lure with the right conditions for sunset . I had to underexpose a lot to keep the subject and the golden hour of sunset colors to match what I wanted it to look like in my picture over the lake in the conditions.
