I was taking photos for a creative assignment in my first photography class. We needed to take the pictures at sunrise and sunset. After taking some sunrise photos, I drove to a nearby marina at Lake Lewisville to scout some good shots. Later that same day, I saw a forecast for rain and storms. A few dozen people were nearby either having a picnic, fishing, boating, or getting in one last swim before the cold weather. I had already done many pictures, and felt I'd need to leave soon. I saw dark clouds and lighting in the east, followed by a loud rumble of thunder. As I turned from the sunset, the marina shop presented this reflection - a chance that I never planned or anticipated; but couldn't pass up. When going over my photos for this assignment, the best ones were of this window shot.
