Stone and Mirror

One of my favorite spots for sunsets, Black Rocks at Presque Isle in Marquette (Upper Michigan). Especially when the waves of Lake Superior have left huge puddles up in the rocks along the lakeshore that make for great mirrors... twice the clouds and light for the same price. 🙂 

The big risk, though, is that you're not supposed to use the camera viewscreen when the camera has the sun in a shot because it can burn it out. But, the sun will do worse to your eyeball when you look through what is essentially a telescope right at the burning ball of gas. It's very likely my eyesight has gotten as bad as it is now from all the years of sunset photos. Sacrificing for the art I guess. lol
