Sunset on Clear Lake

Dinner with friends Sunday night.
Through the window, I could see the sky turn gold.
I could feel the magic of a sunset on the water pulling me.

So when my host suggested I walk out to the pier to capture it on my camera...

I didn't argue.

How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset. 
~ George McDonald

Every time you wake up and ask yourself, What good things am I going to do today?, remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it. 
~ Indian Proverb

The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire. 
~ Pamela Hansford Johnson

It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream. 
~ Bern Williams

The sunrise is God's greeting - the sunset, his signature. 
~ Unknown

Peace... is seeing a sunset, and knowing who to thank.
