About 20 minutes after sunset on the Yukon River, a great time for photography, when the clouds reflect the twilight, creating a soft warm glow. It got quite cold and started snowing early this year by Yukon standards, and by November, it was looking a lot like winter, as seen here. It seems like it's been snowing and cold ever since. The foreground is mostly frozen now, but the background water is one of the few places on the river that doesn't freeze over in winter.

Technical: a hand-blend of 2 long exposures in CS5, 1.6 seconds for the sky and 2.5 for the river using a 6 stop ND filter.
