Sunset on Lake Conway

Sunset on Lake Conway

September 01 2018

We all know how inspiring a sunset can be. However, most of us only make time
for sunsets when we’ re on vacation, as i f that calming, beautiful moment can only
occur when we’ re in an exotic place, free from everyday obligations. But the sunset
is accessible daily, and offers an easy, f ree way to infuse some wonder and awe into
life.
This late summer scene was captured by Belle Isle resident, Todd Maugans.
