Good sunset views are tough to find around here. The roads point the wrong way or trees or hills obscure the view. However, we did find a spot on Mississippi Lake from Lake Park Road or actually from Birch Avenue after you turn off Lake Park and a few other roads. I'm not sure that most of these shots were taken on public land, but no one challenged us.
The first two photos are near the public dock.
Now for some more direct shots of the sunset across the lake. I don't suppose any other explanation is required.
My only slight regret is not doing any longer exposures just to smooth out the choppy water a little, but I am pretty pleased overall.
