Shall we expect a series of dragon boat festival shots?

Always terrific. Wascana Park doesn't have a bad angle/side.

In Laos there is an annual Dragon Boat Race on the Mekong River in Vientiane. This reminded me of it - I haven't been there since 12 yrs ago. Thanks for the nice photos.

We have on dragon boat here in Powell River used by the breast cancer survivor's society. They are so dedicated about practicing during the summer months. I invite you to come see my "coming home" sunset. - Margy

Always magical lighting.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Hmm, I think I'd have a hard time maintaining speed if I had to rowi past something that pretty. (But if they had to be exercising, at least that was a beautiful backdrop for it.)

Great shot. I like the contrast between the mainly horizontal orientation of the sun over the cloud and vertical orientation of the reflection in the water.

This is so beautiful, the evenings in Wascana Park are as beautiful in person as they are in your photographs.
