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.

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.

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

 

Afterglow

This was taken a short time after the sunset of the previous image in Grand Haven, Michigan over the waters of Lake Michigan. The perspective has changed with my choice of a wider angle lens along with the dramatic transition in the lighting, color and texture of the clouds.

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.

 

Window Through the Storm

As a storm front came ashore from Lake Michigan in the west toward Holland, Michigan this afternoon,  I could see through an opening in the clouds which revealed a clear blue sky in the distance.  Autumn cloud formations often offer themselves as interesting subjects for photography and today was no exception.

 

Sky Afire

I woke up to an amazing sky today. It seemed to be full of fire and the display was incredibly beautiful. I was looking for an interesting foreground when I found these electric power transmission lines and towers. I thought the interaction between nature and man was interesting. I also wondered if in time towers such as these will become obsolete when new methods of transferring the power needs of people may be found.

 

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.

Descending Sun

Today’s sunset was particularly beautiful with a dramatic contrast of dark clouds along with orange and yellow coloring in the sky. I caught a moment as the sun was peeking through a crescent shaped break in the clouds while it descended toward the waters of Lake Michigan in Ottawa County, Michigan.

Cloud Formations

Massive cloud formations appeared over a Zeeland, Michigan field. The clouds produced plenty of rain over the area, which was welcomed after a long dry spell. Prints and greeting cards of this image are available below via the photo link:
