Michigan Autumn

On an overcast day in Michigan this afternoon, I found some color to brighten the day.

Adrift in an Abstract Sea

I spotted this Mallard duck today as it floated along in what seemed to be an abstract painting with colors spilling out all around. The sun peaked through the surrounding Autumn foliage lighting up the neon green of the bird’s head and neck while the reflections of the environment were washed away in the ripples.

Nature’s Mirror

I was happy to find this shoreline of Autumn colors reflected in a small lake yesterday. I enjoy finding tranquil scenes such as this.

Enter the Behemoth

There is quite a bit happening in this image I captured today. The giant Great Lakes freighter Calumet, built in 1973, weighing in at over 10,000 tons and 630 feet long (192 meters), was entering the channel at Grand Haven, Michigan. The ship dwarfed the Lighthouse as a kite boarder in the foreground took in the view.

Orange of October

The forests changing to vibrant orange in October aren’t the only places to find this beautiful color in Autumn. I also found the sun’s fading rays at the end of the day painting Lake Michigan with the pumpkin color last Monday. This lonely boat had its sails lowered for the Captain to enjoy the tranquil view.

Colorful Beacon

The South Haven Lighthouse has a completely different and more dramatic look at night. I decided to take advantage of a mild evening tonight to capture the light and color it exhibits.
