The stillness of dusk

Just a few minutes outside of Red River, NM are these two little ponds, which are called Fawn Lakes.  They are accessed by crossing the river over a little wooden footbridge, and then hiking through the woods for a few minutes.  It is a beautiful spot and rather scenic.  There are usually a lot of folks fishing and hanging out, so it was a real treat to find this one deserted when I arrived before sunset to snap a few.  Though the sun was already out of sight, the sky had these awesome clouds and I had enough light to work with.  I really like how the last rays are coming through the top of that tree, and how still and quiet it was there.
