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.

Appreciation of Nature and the Outdoors

I recently created this video showing some of the work I’ve done. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

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 my visits to the lakeshore. The ice gently floated, swaying with the little wave activity that was present.

The waves of Lake Michigan themselves can make for a great photographic subject. Each is unique and ever changing. In this case I caught the sun backlighting the wave, revealing luminous shades of green at the wave’s peak.

I found this stream flowing into Lake Michigan today not far from Fennville, Michigan. I used the reverse “S” compositional technique along with the choice of monochrome to enhance the mood.

One of the perks of living near Lake Michigan are the beautiful sunsets and lighthouse views 🙂

Boiling Sea

I captured the waves of Lake Michigan crashing onto a rock outcropping as the sun was setting. The combination brought to mind a boiling sea.

A sunset over lake Michigan is always a work of art to witness. I was happy to capture this colorful moment.
