As veteran viewers of Clark Lake sunsets know, the images change by the minute, sometimes sooner.  It’s a bit like color combinations at the Cascades or inventory at Pier One–never the same for long.  And of course, it’s nature, not electronics, painting the picture overhead.  The Sunday sunset was not an exception to the rule.  Here are three views of it.

A couple minutes later, and zeroing in on the action, the appearance changes.

Once the sun settled behind the horizon, the afterglow illuminated the sky.

Every evening, the sun sets farther to the north.  That’s reassuring for those looking forward to summer at Clark Lake!  Another sure sign are docks and boats going into the lake.  And docks that aren’t in are lining up along the shore as they ready for duty.
