Remnants of Winter

Some of Winter’s snow remained today in a wetland area of Holland, Michigan. I found this Great Blue Heron there amidst the reeds and melting snow. It was feeling like Spring as temperatures approached 50F (10C) in West Michigan with tomorrow expected to reach 60F (15.55C). (click on the image to see an enlarged more detailed view)

Frozen Waves of Sand

I discovered this mixture of sand and ice along the shores of Lake Michigan yesterday.  It remains a cold Spring as much of the ice remains on the beach of Pere Marquett in Muskegon, Michigan.  The red lighthouse stands in the background amidst the frozen wonderland.

Each Grand Haven, Michigan winter produces its own signature in the way the ice freezes and melts, how much snow accumulates, etc. This is a winter past that I captured with the Lake Michigan lighthouse and pier in the background along with ice formations in the foreground. Winter can be beautiful.

 

Cover of Snow

I found this wooded area in Ottawa County, Michigan covered with fresh snow. The dark waters of a river separated the blanket of white on each of its banks. (click on the image to see an enlarged version)

Disappearing Ice

I found this pair of Mallard ducks munching on the edge of an ice flow in Holland, Michigan today. I’m not sure why they were doing this, but if you have any ideas, feel free to post them :)

Ice Water

I used a longer exposure to capture the movement of this partially frozen West Michigan waterfall today. I liked the tonal range of the image and converted it to monochrome.

Snow in Spring… Snowy Owl

It was a great surprise to find a Snowy Owl still around this Spring in West Michigan today. It looked like his claws were ready for hunting, although with the snow gone, he might stand out a bit more than normal with his white feathers.

Mountain in the Sky

There were huge awe inspiring clouds over West Michigan today. This one appeared to me as a snow covered mountain in the sky, lit from behind by the sun.

Flying Snowy

I was happy to have the opportunity to capture this beautiful Snowy Owl in flight today as I traveled through Muskegon County in Michigan. It’s starting to feel like Spring as Temperatures rose to about 60 degrees!
