Wetlands near Texarkana, Texas

On a beautiful sunny day, in an unknown (to me) area, I passed this scene on a frontage road as I headed north on I-30 on my way to pick up a few groceries. It was so striking I took the next exit and turned to double back wanting to get a shot of this gorgeousness! I love wetlands anywhere, and with the puffy white clouds showing reflections in the water, the sun brightening the colored leaves, and the drying grasses, it was a scene I just could not pass up!I took a few pictures and after purchasing my needed items I headed back to get out my paints and see if I could do the scene justice....
