Sunset at Lake Erie

On a sunny summer weekend I have decided to drive towards North Western Pennsylvania, destination unknown. I was trying to get some good sunset. Western Pennsylvania has three large lakes, Lake Arthur, Pymatuning lake and Lake Erie. I been to Lake Arthur and Pymatuning lake before. But never been to Lake Erie during sunset time. After driving 2 hrs 30 mins from Pittsburgh I reached Presque Isle. Presque Isle is an arching sandy peninsula that juts into Lake Erie. I reached Presque Isle around 6 PM and I have to wait another 2 hrs for sunset.

Perry Monument on Presque Isle

After spending some times on The Perry Monument on Presque Isle, I am off to the beach side. It has 13 beaches for swimming and a marina. Below images is my personal favorite which I have taken at beach 7.


Once I reached in the beach I could hardly see any clouds. Without clouds suset won’t be dramatic. But luckily I got some clouds during sunset.
