Jupiter and Saturn Dancing amongst the clouds Over Lake Erie

This photo was shot August 14th, 2019. I was in My Hometown at our lighthouse and Pier star gazing and taking in the breeze off the lake. When I was started to head out I noticed Jupiter(Bright star to right) and Saturn(Less brighter star to left) placed so peacefully amongst the clouds. As I looked down along the shore and watched the lights Illuminating the shoreline and dancing so subtly on the waves. I thought how I wanted to remember this exact moment as it was the moment that defined what I consider peace! The tranquility of this pictures is what I wish everyone gets to experience at least once in their lives. For the stars, water and earth play beautiful melodies in their surroundings for us all to enjoy!
