[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My Husband is a ship captain. He travels all over the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence Seaway. I get the oppertunity to go "sailing" with him a few times a year. I must say the sunrise and sunsets are so much more spectacular when there is no land to interfere with! I hope you'll like this photo. Honestly I'm not sure where on the Lake I took it but know it was on Lake Superior. And while you look a this... imagine the gentle breeze blowing, the sound of a ship engine thumping, and the slight sound of the water as it moves from the ship. It truly is very peaceful.

Hi Donna,
This is a wonderful sunset with beautiful colors in the sky and lake. But, the horizon needs to be straight and I would put the horizon closer to the 1/3 line. Beside that a very serene view.

Beautiful.... ! just beautiful, almost perfect picture. Can not say anything more

You simply make me jealous... Very beautiful and very well documented.
Thanks, G.

Hi Donna,

Beautiful view and colors.
Because of the colors on the water and no clouds in the sky, for a basic rule of thirds which can be broken and I always do, anyhow, 2/3 water and 1/3 sky.
If you would like to see this rule broken which gives a dramatic scene, go to Trek Lens and enter Fisher, you'll see a golden sunset with a lighthouse silhoutted.


Hi Donna,
Süperb sunset.Wonderfuly colors.
Very well done.

Hi Donna

A beautiful serene shot, it is so calming I can only imagine what it is like to see for real. The colours are lovely, and nice framing too.

Regards Hilary :)

Hello Donna
Very peaceful seascape. Great colors from the setting sun. The horizon does tilt a bit, but I see that it has been addressed in a workshop. Regards.

Donna, what a site. Lovely I had a look at your collections. All of them are excellent and your caption capabilities are brilliant. This picture reminds me of Rameswaram in India, where you can see Sunset and Moonrise at the same time. As you have rightly said no one can replace the nature. All the best. Ganesh d: Later

Hi Donna,
