Peeping at the crimson eclipse

I got to the dunes a little before sunset with clouds on the horizon.  Despite recent frosty mornings on the Bluecircle the Lake Michigan mosquitos were still around, although too sluggish to pose a real nuisance. The colors shifted to an Autumn blend as the blue water turned to copper.  A distant band of clouds threatened to obscure the partial solar eclipse entirely, but just at sundown patience was rewarded with a glimpse of the lunar shadow. IMG_1400
