Mclain State Park - Superior Sunset    ...scroll down to share comments
Photo by Melanie Clements

When Brant Clements emailed this shot captured by his wife Melanie, it was evening here in my room with only one lamp... so there was low light to begin with. A bit blinding to click on the attachment and see the brilliant rays almost burning a hole in my screen. Scroll back up there and take another look - as bright as you would imagine an atomic reaction (which, being the sun, I guess it is :o)

And the aspect ratio of this shot is the second surprise - twice as high as most of our 'big pictures'. This reminds me of a Pastyvision shot a couple of years ago... only, turned up and down.

Thanks, Melanie and Brant, for this view from McLain. Very timely (K-Day). Speaking of views, if you were at our home in Eagle River typing these words with me, and slightly raised your eyes to look above and beyond the screen here on the desk, this is what you would see this afternoon:

Seen on the Pasty Cam in 1998

This photo at McClain park is absoutelly beautiful. I think it is the best that I have seen here and there have been some great ones. Thanks for this.

This photo reminds me of so many of the sunsets I've taken at McLain. It wouldn't be summer without at least a week at our favorite campground! We were blessed with five beautiful sunsets very similar to this one while we were there this summer for seven nights. Next summer seems so far away!

This is very pretty. I would have loved to seen it myself.

Such a beautiful world - and the people in it.
I'm glad to enjoy them.

Very nice! Musta been a heckuva vacation, Brant and Melanie!

How terribly romantic to have been witness to such a beautiful sunset together. Such a lucky couple!

By JJ on Sunday, August 24, 2003 - 11:52 pm:

Nice sunset!

By Paul on Wednesday, February 2, 2005 - 11:54 pm:

I plan to see it for myself next spring!
