Fisher Folks

It was a mighty fine morning for fishing on the lake. I wonder if they caught anything.

September Color in Southeast Michigan

We have some pops of color here and there but it's still early in the color show.

Wings In Flight

One more pic from my morning at the beach with the gulls. I really like this pic of the multi-colored gull in flight.

Small Wings

This is only the second Monarch butterfly I've seen on my butterfly bush this year. How nice of him to stop by on his migration south for the winter!

Winging

I got this shot on the beach just after a rain storm came through. The air was still filled with energy but the gulls seemed to be at ease with it all.

Autumn Color Show


It has begun. The fall colors are beginning to appear in Michigan. There are just patches of color here and there, mostly the early maples. It's probably too early to hazard a guess but I'm going to anyway based on the little I've seen so far. I think the colors will be more vibrant this year than last. Last year's colors were rather lackluster so there's plenty of room for improvement!

Drama on the Lake

I haven't posted a black and white photo in a while. Here's one I took recently.

It was a windy day on the lake and the clouds and sun made for some nice drama.

Pure Lake Michigan

I'm trying not to pass up any opportunities to see and photograph Lake Michigan sunsets. When the grey days of November get here I'll have this to remember.

A Warm Autumn Glow


The nights are cool these days but the evenings are still relatively mild. The sunsets are just as beautiful as they were in the summer. I guess technically it is still summer but the Dairy Korner has closed for the season and if that doesn't spell the end of summer I don't know what does.

Autumnal Sunset

The sunsets over Lake Michigan have been looking more and more autumnal over the past couple weeks. Heavy clouds seem to hover, some light some dark. They make for more drama and moodiness. They are harbingers of winter and the long months when sunsets over the lake will be few and far between. I will savor te next few weeks and then I'll start counting the days until next spring when another season of beautiful sunsets will begin!

Sunday Sailing

Nothing says summer like seeing the sailboats come out to play! These boats on Lake Michigan are heading for Chicago. There was a nice breeze blowing today. Don't you wish you could be on board?
