Reflections in the waters of Paint Creek Lake, near Hillsboro, Ohio. Taken on April 8, 1997 at 2:45 UT, using Fuji Provia 1600 with a 2-stop push (ISO 1600). 45 seconds at f/2 using a Pentax ME Super on a fixed tripod with Pentax 50mm f/1.4 lens. The sky is well-lit with the light pollution of Hillsboro, Cincinnati and Dayton, giving the appearance of a sunset, even though it was 10:45 PM local time!
