Beautiful vivid sunset
Peaceful calm water
This was the sunset scene last Saturday night over Shawano Lake at Cecil, WI. This public landing boat launch and fishing pier is right in the middle of town. We had just eaten and were coming out of the restaurant parking lot when we saw the blazing orange brilliance. One swing through the park got us this view. I had the camera with me for a change.
All kinds of thoughts go through my head when I stop and savor a spectacular sunrise or sunset, and they all seem to be spectacular if we stop and look. These natural happenings freeze me and bring me to that place that we all seek, the now. Some people can achieve this on their own, but it has always eluded me. Nature has a way of doing it.
Sites like this always bring a little peace into my life. I must remember to stop and live in the moment when the opportunity presents itself. As far as the photo goes, I love the intricacy the shadows and reflections make of the structure below the fishing dock and the outline on the horizon, like that water tower to the far left that seems to be as far out of the water as that cloud lit up like a spotlight.
Peace to all
