I had planned this shot for almost a year. Stanley Lake is 3 hours from where I live, so I am not able to get there much. I had been on several trips, but the sky was either too cloudy or not cloudy enough to catch the colors of the sunset. This was taken in October 2012. It was quite cold outside and I had to take a shot then go warm up. This is two shots blended together. One shot for the lake and one shot for the stars.
