Superb image, Paul! I like the complementary colors, and the triangle formed by the horizon and the shoreline.

Thank you, Arthur, my friend. Thank you also Mike, Carol and Dennis. Everything came together just right, for which I am very grateful, and thankful I was there at the right time. Lake Superior was unusually calm, I never anticipated seeing the sun lighting up the Northern horizon, and I not only captured a meteor, but also Jupiter rising in the lower right corner. I can't take credit for most of that.

Thank you, Philip. I've gone out several times hoping to catch meteors during various meteor showers just to have it cloud up, so this one means a lot to me, even if it was just due to luck.

Thank you Howard. I especially appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you appreciate about this image, and I agree about the meteor. I have a number of others without it, and they don't have the same impact. I feel fortunate to have captured the meteor and that it is where it is; anywhere else wouldn't work as well.

Thank you, David, Virginia, Arthur, Philip, Nancy and Debby. Thank you for all your encouraging comments and good wishes. If it goes further, that would be great, but it is from a very enjoyable night along Lake Superior, and I am pleased to get this recognition.

Spectacular accomplishments are always balanced by a degree of humbleness. The real prize is the one we quietly carry inside, remembering the feeling of being there while the camera did its work.

From that perspective it is already a prize-winning image as it was a very memorable and enjoyable night; Lake Superior was calm, the sky was beautiful, and I had it all to myself.
