Late adding comments on this image; time seemed to slip away and the turnover surprised me.

This is Lake Alice on the University of Florida campus. Alligators gather on the banks of the island on the left to sun. This was taken just after a clearing of rain all day, just before sunset. The white on the bank are Ibis. There is an alligator in the water but too small to see at this distance.

Thank you for all the lovely comments and the generous votes.

Congratulations on the ribbon - but not in a Free Study, I think :) Maybe there's another coming in a couple of days? Anyway, this is a beautiful scene and the light and colors are gorgeous.

Beautiful scene and lovely light. There is a spot on our local lake which looks rather like this (in the right season, not now) but I have never captured it so beautifully. Top 5

My eyes go directly to the clouds and the reflection. Not a bad thing cause that just means your beautiful choice of the tree is complete to make a wonderful image!

The serenity of this locale is beautifully captured. Well balanced. Is that a person in a hammock to the left of the tree base? An alligator?
