Manistee Breakwater Lighthouse Manistee, Michigan


Some nice waves rolling in from named storm (Draco). I really like the colors in this one. Gonna have to frame it up I do believe. :)

"Inspiration Point" Bluff overlooking Lake Michigan and the little town of Arcadia, Michigan

Via Flickr: I was going to head down to Grand Haven during the gale warnings for (Draco) and shoot there, and the St. Joe lighthouse, but I decided to shoot something new. I ended up first in the little town of Arcadia. The roadside park was closed and 16 inches or more of fresh snow fell during the night so I had to park the truck a half mile or so up the road and walk back. The stairs that climb up to the lookout were drifted thigh deep in snow, making it quite a feat . It was well worth the climb though, the view was gorgeous, the waves are much bigger than they appear. If you look close you can see Trinity Lutheran Church, Arcadia's most prominent structure and a Michigan state historic site.

Lake Huron Sunrise, Port Hope, Michigan


I wish I would have had gotten some video the morning I took this photo. The ice was bobbing around, making cool gurgling sounds in the water. I stood there listening and watching this sunrise all morning.

Winter at Miners Falls Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore


I spent an entire day hiking to some of my favorite places in the PRNL. Had the place to myself, what a feeling of solitude..

Winter on the Mosquito river Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore


I hiked back to the Mosquito river believing the weathermen that the lake-effect snow was over , and that the wind direction was changing to a southerly flow. NOT so much. shortly after I reached the Mosquito falls and got some pics, it started snowing HEAVY. the narrow trail through the forest doesn't look the same with the pines bending over and your tracks you made coming in are quickly being covered up. There is a couple of intersections where you turn on that trail to Mosquito, and apparently some of this years deer hunters thought it was a good plan to use the trail signs for target practice .

Winter at Miners Falls Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore


I had a blast playing in the snow for a couple of days in Upper Michigan. Some of the roads leading into the Pictured Rocks area were getting close to being unpassable.
