Nice one Jim up.gif  I assume you blended exposures somehow. Were you wearing rubber boots? - looks like your feet got wet on that one.

Thanks - and yes, I manually blended three exposures, using a mix of hand-created masks (gradient fill and painting on the mask) for most of the sky and some of the water as well as a "luminosity mask" with a bit of painting (this was for the area right around the sun, to  retain  detail  with a fairly dark exposure  of  this scene). I also blended some bits into the water portion of the foreground to get the  right combo of elements  for the  composition I was wanting. It was kind of a learning  exercise for applying some techniques I'd learned from some of Sean  Bagshaw's video tutorial content (Greg Benz has  some simpler versions of the same ideas on YouTube) on  exposure blending.

I was just wearing regular hiking  boots, though they're reasonably waterproof. I think the water never  rose higher  than an inch or two on my boots. Whereas getting this shot nearly breached the cuffs of my boots:
