temperature inversion, early June 2014 on Grand Traverse Bay

Traveling north on M-22, Michigan state trunk road 22, between Traverse City and Suttons Bay in the sunny afternoon, I glanced out the window at Old Mission Peninsula lying at a distance and across the west half of Grand Traverse Bay. There for the first time I saw a temperature inversion that gave the illusion of a band of horizon neatly cutting across the actual treeline of the peninsula to form a reflected straight edge.
Whenever there appears a novelty or rare view from the taken-for-granted scenes of one’s life, it comes as a gift or blessing, causing you to feel grateful for something special that few others may have witnessed; a little like being let on a secret, or being privileged to gain audience to an especially valuable experience. I may have not bumped into a large marine creature or watched a meteor land in my backyard, but to glimpse this flat trimmed skyline gave me a thrill that day!
