Two Great Lakes Sundown 1

Two Great Lakes Sundown

Earth rotates our nearest star below the horizon again, this time across the waters of two great lakes. I took this sequence of photos looking beyond and beneath the Mackinac Bridge, thereby shooting across both Lakes Huron (near) and Michigan (far). Already distorted by differential refracting of the light through a long fetch of atmosphere, this sunset process concluded with a prolonged and even more pronounced flattening effect along the horizon, continued here in the "Visual Effects" section; or for the rest of the sunsets and sunrises, proceed in the Sunrise/Sunset gallery.
