Photographer’s Notes
I’m sure the creators of the DPC world meant the “Awwwww Effect” to refer to puppies, children, lovers, flowers, and thusly, this is probably a shoehorn. But I loved the sunset, and it made me say “Awwwww.” With 5 w’s I might add.

As best I can do it, I’ve edited this to match exactly what I saw. We get great sunsets, here; lousy thunderstorms and never lightning; but great sunsets.

I suppose some will question leaving a small sliver of lake at the bottom. For the record, it was by choice. You may not have made the same choice.

When I finished editing this, it was 6000 pixels long. Resizing to 800 is a Crime Against Nature. C’mon DPC – join the 20th century, or at least the 21st century.
