Mark Twain is quoted as saying “history never repeats itself, but it does often rhyme.”  The same could be said of naturally occurring phenomena at Clark Lake.  Sunrises and sunsets surely fit that category.  This morning’s display caught on camera featured bright sun illuminating the Kentucky Point Cove and South Woodlands.  The gray sky above, and the darker water beneath, contrasted dramatically.  And this isn’t the first time for this show, as this website as published pictures like it before.  Of course, it’s never exactly the same — it only seems like it. The sun won’t be in the exact same location at the precise point in the season.  Shadows fall differently and reflections will vary.

What’s remarkable about such views is how frequently they occur at Clark Lake.  A good thing, right?

This slide show is an opportunity to view this morning’s takeaways and catch up on some other recent views of Clark Lake — a sunset from April 14 and the Morea’s out for a morning paddle on April 8th.

  • South Woodlands - April 24, 2023
  • Kentucky Point Cove - April 24, 2023
  • Pierces Bay - April 24, 2023
  • Looking west, Morea's - April 8, 2023

Anyone attempting to capture such beauty learns quickly that lighting changes even more quickly.  That sunset viewed from your front lawn could change a lot in the time it takes to walk to the end of the dock.  And, of course, you have to be ready with your camera when the show begins.
