I found this lone photographer on the icy beach in South Haven near frozen Lake Michigan as the sun was beginning to set today. I also took advantage of the opportunity to capture the image below of the Lighthouse and pier that was close by. The lighthouse has been standing sentinel there since 1903.

Along the icy shores of Lake Michigan today at Pier Cove, I captured the orange/yellow afterglow of the sunset. Three hikers are shown on the far left, providing a sense of scale to the beautiful scene. Ice, sand and free flowing lake waters mix to provide an amazing landscape, bringing pleasure to the eye…

The sunset was amazing tonight in Southwest, Michigan. The colors intensified and changed during and after the sun went below the horizon. I was in an agricultural area and found the barn pictured above made for an interesting subject in the foreground.

For the next image I found this tangle of trees to look interesting as they stood starkly against the blazing sky…

For the final image I combined a man made element of some farm architecture with a grouping of trees as the sky turned a more deep red color.

I captured the moment this horse and rider were enjoying the view of a sunset over Lake Michigan.

The interaction of light and shadow along with the glow of the sun to me gave the appearance of a dragon in the sky, complete with fire about to emerge from its mouth.

 

 

Boiling Sea

I captured the waves of Lake Michigan crashing onto a rock outcropping as the sun was setting. The combination brought to mind a boiling sea.
