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.

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!

 

Edge of the Earth

The sky was ablaze with color over the weekend as the sun was setting below the waters of Lake Michigan. I enjoyed this spectacular view last Sunday from my vantage point on the beach at Grand Haven State park in Ottawa County, Michigan.

 

End of the Day

I had the opportunity this week to see another beautiful Michigan sunset. I happened to be near an open field with a tree line on the horizon which framed the setting sun nicely.

I spotted this lonely looking ship on the horizon of Lake Michigan just after sunset tonight. The afterglow from the sunset worked as a beautiful background to separate the dark clouds above from the dark waters below. (Click on the image to see an enlarged version)

 

Dragon Swallowing the Sun

I noticed an interesting opening in a dark cloud bank as the sun was setting tonight over Holland, Michigan. I waited for the orange glow from the sun to break through and looked for an opportunity to capture an interesting image. To me the abstract shape seemed to coalesce into the form of a dragon. Or… maybe I’ve watched one too many episodes of the Game of Thrones.  :)

Heavenly Landscape

I found the dark contrasting thin line of cloud gave the illusion of a horizon in the sky as I photographed the scene. The pastel orange backdrop and floating dark clouds above added to the drama of the moment. This is yet another example of a Michigan sky as the sun sets, which I always enjoy capturing and sharing.

Sunset Forest

This stand of tall trees were lit up by a West Michigan sunset today. They seemed to glow an incredible scarlet for about a minute or so before fading. The photo is exactly as it looked to the unaided eye.
