Clouds Were My Friend Tonight

leave a comment »

It was cloudy in Cleveland, but the satellite image showed some mostly clear skies west along the Lake Erie shore.

So I made a trip out to Sherod Park in Vermilion, Ohio, in pursuit of some sunset over the lake images.

The clouds stayed to the east and south although there was one bank of clouds out over the water, which turned out to be a nice thing when the sun dipped behind them.

Edgewater Park Sunset

leave a comment »

A sun-splashed day in late September is not unusual but having 90 degree temperatures on that day is out of the ordinary. Cleveland residents and visitors turned out in droves in Edgewater Park to enjoy the summer-like weather that felt more like July than early autumn. They were still out in large numbers at the park trying to enjoy every minute of an unusual day as the sun sank over Lake Erie, .

Racing the Sunset

The sun is setting over Lake Erie and perhaps this boater is headed back to the dock or trying to get in one last run before it turns dark. The image was made at Edgewater Park in Cleveland last September on an unusually warm day.

Fishing at Sundown

A lone fisherman doesn’t seem fazed by the fact that the sun is setting over Lake Erie and soon he will be plunged into darkness. The scene is Edgewater Park in Cleveland on a late September day that saw the region set records for high temperatures. The high temperature that day was in the low 90s. Fall has officially begun a few days earlier.

Sinking Into Lake Erie

Interstate 90 in the vicinity of Erie, Pennsylvania, is built on a series of high bluffs that provide a view of Lake Erie to the north.

The view of the lake is particularly pronounced near North East, Pennsylvania.

We had just finished dinner and were headed back to Ohio on I-90. I was sitting in the passenger seat, my camera in hand. I had a few opportunities to catch the sunset and this was the best of the lot.

The sun is about to sink into the lake, ending another day.

Another Lake Erie Sunset

We were having dinner in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, at a restaurant that has a deck right on Lake Erie. We make it a point to go there for dinner once every summer on a warm evening.

This year we arrived later than usual. It was the first time I’d been there as the sun was setting.

Soon the sun would descend into a soup of gathering clouds.

Last Light of Day

Catawba sunset 03

I don’t know if these three women had intended to watch the sun set over Lake Erie at Catawba Island State Park.

They arrived well after the sun had set. But they had time to admire the red, orange and yellow glows of the light bending over the horizon and lighting up the sky before the arrival of the blue hour.

In some ways the after sunset light show is just a striking as watching the sun dip below the horizon.
