The sunsets on the south shore of Lake Erie are not quite as brilliant in the winter, due to the position of the sun in the sky. The sun sets south of the lake and doesn't usually light up the clouds. Tonight was just pretty, because the water was so calm in the harbor. The puffy clouds in the sky picked up a little color, but were mostly muted.
The still water made for nice reflections of the light house. And the moon made an early appearance.
I finally put my new tripod and Platypod to use. A couple behind the scenes shot highlight the gear. Both are fantastic.
