Turbulent Waters

Last Sunday there was an unusually windy afternoon near Lake Michigan with gusts in the 40 mph range. I decided to see how the lake’s waves were as they came in on a frozen beach. I was surprised by the intensity of those waves as well as the color variations as the sun lit them from behind.

I decided to create this image in grayscale, emphasizing the high contrast.


As the sun neared the horizon, the color of the water turned golden.


And as the sun ended the day, the color became more intense.



Moonlit Flight

The best time to see the Supermoon in my area of Michigan was tonight. I was fortunate to also see this flight of Sandhill Cranes flying in formation as the moon was rising.

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…

I caught this pair of ducks floating along as the sun’s reflection formed in the water along with the vibrant colors at dusk in Muskegon County, Michigan.
