Sunspot Freighter

A freighter slips into a sunspot far out on Lake Huron, just after sunrise. Headed north, up lake, it has just passed another freighter headed south.

At dawn, banks of clouds sit in giant gold and purple horizontal stripes. As the sun climbs higher, shafts of energetic light pierce the cloud cover and form sunspots that illuminate the massive freighters.
