Day 244, The Winds of November Came Early
The winds made awesome waves and the cool temps made awesome clouds. The sun peeked through often making it a phenomenal day for taking pictures. I took over 400, most would make a suitable magazine cover or postcard. It was hard to take a bad picture.
It was tough to choose a handful of pics to feature here so I opted to choose just two, one from each of the two photo shoots I went on. The picture above was taken from Tiscornia Beach in St Joseph, Michigan. It gives a good feel for the size of the waves, the force of the wind, and the bright contrasts of color provided by the sun. The picture below was taken from Silver Beach in St Joe. It's amazing how many people come "out of the woodwork" to play on the waves when the surf's up. These three guys were kite boarding and I caught 2 of them in mid air. Be sure to click on the image to see it larger and get the full impact. They were exciting to watch!
I had a four-day Labor Day weekend and all 4 days provided great photo ops. I hate to see the summer go but I got the best of it in pics and that makes me a very happy girl. :-)
