Sunset on Superior

We went sunset searching … and our first night on the beach was one of those unusual nights – not sure we’ll ever see a sunset quite so unusual.

The night was cloudy. Cloudy often helps a sunset view but this was too cloudy and the sun was hidden when we first got there. We still took a couple pictures because the Lake Superior shore is always a photo op.

But then as the sun got lower, it completely disappeared except for a narrow strip along the horizon, looking like someone had turned on a narrow neon light.

We patiently waited. and suddenly we saw a tiny burst of sun just as it hit the horizon – but the even more unique aspect was the cloud cover on the right side (of picture), but the neon light effect on the left side.

Sort of a half sunset.
