Tranquility

I attempted to capture the tranquility at day’s end in Holland, Michigan as the sun was setting with this image. Golden/orange light reflects of the ice of Lake Macatawa in the foreground.

Day’s End

I captured this moment yesterday as the sun was departing for the day over the cold and icy waters of Lake Michigan near the state park in Holland. Mounds of ice can be seen in the foreground with the open waters of the big lake beyond.

Looking through my files, this image I captured last year of a sunrise caught my eye. I had to share it here to remind us all of the beauty nature offers up each day if we are looking.

Moon in the Mist

I was intrigued by the way the moon seemed to be riding on the mist as I photographed it with a dark blue sky acting as a backdrop.

 

Silhouette from the Sun

I caught this photographer in silhouette as he was opening his camera bag in preparation to photograph the sun setting once again over Lake Michigan at the end of the North Pier at Holland State Park. The structure there made for a nice framing device to emphasize the form of the photographer shown between its support pillars.

The sky can seem to glow afire at times over Lake Michigan as the sun sets. This makes it one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I was fortunate to capture this awe inspiring scene over the big lake at the end of the day.

I found this area on a nearby Michigan farm with golden colored rows in the foreground and interesting clouds coming in from the west.

As I photographed the sun among the clouds recently, I thought of it as a landscape in the sky, hence the title “Skyscape”.

 

Twilight Gathering

I discovered this aerial gathering of what I believe to be Canada Geese among the clouds shortly before they landed after sunset in Zeeland, Michigan today. I believe they were settling in for the evening in nearby cornfields. (click on this or any of my images to see an enlarged more detailed version)

Here is the final shot of this series of photos from the colorful sunset that I recently photographed along the shores of Lake Michigan at Grand Haven State Park. The pier and lighthouse structures give a sense of scale to the scene. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
