Sierra Lake at Sunset, oil painting from the Western Sierras. Beautiful sunset with magnificent cloud formations, reflections, and ripples on the lake. The scene was from late summer evening at Hume Lake when the water was very still so the reflections were clear. A passing duck caused the top of the water to ripple, reflecting the clouds above in the ripples. It was actually a much wider scene but I thought it would be interesting just to crop a long vertical piece from the middle. If it shows top on the website as a square be sure and tap on the picture to have it show the whole painting. The beauty is in the clouds at the top.
