Last summer we had an unusual situation, a significant amount of smoke from wildfires in British Columbia came down into the area and there was no wind to blow it off. The silence during the smoky hot spell felt eerie.
Setting sun fading out.
An osprey and its reflection

Another red sun fade out.
The reflections are an indication of the very low winds. In the evenings in summer the water is often fairly choppy instead of the light ripple. In the morning it is usually calmer but not the mirror like stillness. The sunsets are often lovely but at that time the sun just faded out through the thick atmosphere.
The picture above is a reflection of the picture below on the glass of some pictures on the wall, which was taken through a picture window! It is interesting to me how the man, who is in both pictures really seems to stand out in the reflection.
