September Sunset at Mentor Headlands

The weather was comfortably warm and there was no breeze, perfect weather conditions to watch the sunset on the beach at Mentor Headlands State Park. Lake Erie was calm, and some distant clouds obscured the sun near the horizon, but the golden glow was still beautiful. Boaters and jet skiers were also enjoying the weather conditions. There were many gulls scattered in large groups on beach.  One huge gull, a juvenile Great Black-backed gull, sat in the center of a luge group of herring gulls. It all made for some nice photos and video that required no color adjustments; the bold orange on the lake and in the sky is exactly how it looked to the eye!
