Excuse my 30 second exposure.

Another shot from the same visit, the spillway and its accompanying light:

Again, I  didn’t touch the color here, at least not after releasing the shutter.  I think my automatic white balance may have struggled a bit with this, but I nonetheless like the effect and am happy to take credit for the result.

Without changing any camera settings, the palette was totally different yet similarly compelling.

I’m inclined to come back here regularly, as this was fun.
