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.

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.

Tall Ship

The tall ship, Friends Good Will, sailed out of the channel in South Haven, Michigan today on its way to the big lake. The ship is a reproduction of the original sailing vessel which had its maiden voyage in 1811.

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.

“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 🙂

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.
