The sunrise on a lake is a beautiful sight to behold. The sky is often ablaze with color, from the deep blues and purples of early morning to the vibrant oranges and yellows of sunrise. The lake itself can also reflect the colors of the sky, creating a stunning mirror image. The colors of a sunrise on a lake are caused by the way sunlight interacts with the atmosphere. When sunlight hits the atmosphere, it is scattered in all directions by tiny molecules of gas and air. A custom cursor with Sunrise on a Lake Gradient.
