I recently visited the lake where my wife’s sister and her husband plan to build a home in the next few years. It was a lovely lake and I understand that you can often see loons and bald eagles amongst a host of other wildlife. When we visited, however, it was chilly and very windy. This kept the usual wildlife out of sight and most people inside. On the other hand, I stood on the lake shore for about 2 hours before and slightly after sunset to see what might be seen.  The sunset was very  nice, if not quite spectacular – at least from where I was standing with my tripod. The first four photos show the sun as a cloud passes between me and it. I assume the cloud moved fast because of the same hearty breeze that had been blowing all day.

Here we catch up with the sun just as it catches the horizon. In the second photo below, passing clouds as the sun settled down provided a nice sun ray display.  Finally, the sun dipped below my horizon with its glow fleetingly lighting a small cloud that was still above its lofty horizon.
