'pink moon is on its way'

I happened upon this surprising sunrise along Snail Lake early one morning in December. The lakes are slow in freezing this year--usually the fish houses are on the lakes by Thanksgiving. This one is on its way but some water remained that morning, reflecting the electric sky.
I gladly share this scene @ Skywatch Friday along with Pink Moon by the late, great, Nick Drake for your listening pleasure.

Such a lovely pastel sky with matching reflecion. Have you noticed every one agrees that "lovely" is a very good descriptive for this photo? It certainly works for me.

What a wonderful sight to come upon! I have no idea why but it makes me think of the joy of little girls playing with nail polish.
A beautiful and somehow very satisfying shot.
