No, Lake Erie isn’t the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean, although people are often surprised by just how big Lake Erie is; Erie is really best thought of as an inland sea. That said, I would match up our sunsets against those taken anywhere in the world.
This photograph was taken at Lorain Harbor, about 30 miles west of Cleveland. The lighthouse is known as the Jewel of the Port. If you’re interested, you can learn more about the lighthouse on the Lorain Lighthouse’s website (link will open into a new window).
