Beach Sunset

Its always a pleasure to enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan and its beaches at anytime. But as the sun sets the sky erupts with color, the shadows on the waves deepen and the reflections on the wet sand are on display.

Look Around

It was amazing to see these two visions of the sky within seconds of each other. As I finished photographing the dark sky in one direction, I looked around behind me to see another beautiful view.

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.

Earth Day’s End

As a tribute to Earth Day I decided to capture a sunset over Lake Michigan at the end of the day. A seagull happened to fly by at the appropriate moment which seemed to add something special to the image.

Stars in My Eyes

The Petite Pointe Au Sable Lighthouse (The Little Point of Sand Lighthouse) was completed in 1874 along the shores of Lake Michigan. Its light rises 108 feet over the waters to signal ships the location of the shoreline. I had photographed it recently during the day and decided to try the same subject at night with the sky full of stars this time.

Dune Landscape

I ventured out to the State Park in Ludington, Michigan today where there were diverse landscapes including sand dunes, marshes and vernal pools. This particular image was one of my favorites for the day, showing those elements under a blue sky.

Winter Shore

Today I found this spot on the shores of Lake Michigan, an abstract mix of snow, ice, sand and water. This week continues to be unusually warm with more of the same until the coming weekend.
