Home on the Dune

I found this home sitting on the top of a Lake Michigan dune today just before sunset. The golden light from the sun illuminated the dune grass which rose above the blue waters of the big lake in Southwest, Michigan.

The waves of Lake Michigan themselves can make for a great photographic subject. Each is unique and ever changing. In this case I caught the sun backlighting the wave, revealing luminous shades of green at the wave’s peak.

I found this stream flowing into Lake Michigan today not far from Fennville, Michigan. I used the reverse “S” compositional technique along with the choice of monochrome to enhance the mood.

A lone photographer prepares his equipment under the shelter of a structure on the end of a pier in Holland, Michigan as the sun was low in the sky.

Lake Michigan provides many different looks – this day was a blue day :)

Savage Waves

The waves can get rough on the waters of Lake Michigan. Here a large one crashed onto the rocks near a lighthouse in Grand Haven, Michigan.

This is another area I would love to photograph again. The Grand Sable Banks located along Lake Superior shores in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The banks rise 300 feet on a steep 35 degree angle along the beautiful waters of the lake.
