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.

“i” in the Sky

The sun and its reflection in Lake Michigan formed a beautiful “i” with the sunset last night. The beauty of nature never fails to amaze me. I hope you enjoy this moment as I did capturing it with my camera ­čÖé

First Steps

I captured the moment this little one walked from a man to a woman, most likely its parents, on the north breakwater light in Ludington, Michigan’s Stern park as the sun was setting. This lighthouse was voted one of the top 10 lighthouses to see in the U.S. by the Weather Channel. I think this family moment added its own beauty to the scene.

Frozen Under the Sun

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.

Lake Michigan Ice

Late this afternoon, I was pleased to spot these ice formations on Lake Michigan at Pier Cove. There was almost no wind which hasn’t happened very often during┬ámy visits to the lakeshore. The ice gently floated, swaying with the little wave activity that was present.

Along the icy shores of Lake Michigan today at┬áPier 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…

Home on the Dune

I found this home sitting on the top of a Lake Michigan dune today just before sunset. The golden light from the sun illuminated the dune grass which rose above the blue waters of the big lake in Southwest, Michigan.
