“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 🙂

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.

The interaction of the clouds with the glowing orb of the sun in the sky, along with the colors and shadows made an interesting image.

 

 

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.

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.
