Blue Mesa Reservoir, the largest lake in Colorado, was unusually calm this day and the clear reflections really jumped out at me. I decided to try and see if I could get a double starburst using the reflection and my efforts seemed to pay off. Typically, mid afternoon cloudless skies are not ideal photography conditions, but on that day it was a great combination.
