This is new having just been taken today (December 30, 2007). This time of year, whenever there is a chance to see sunlight I grab my camera and head out. So, after hiking around along the Boardman River and not seeing anything that I wanted to shoot (photographically that is), I headed for Lake Michigan. It was a nice day for a drive - the roads were mostly free of ice and snow for a change. That and the temps. for this time of year were pretty good. I was not sure that I would find anything inviting at the beach, but lo and behold heaven's eyes were beaming down. Of course I had to avoid getting the the footprints in the snow in my image. That makes it doubly tough to get a good composition. Using a 3 stop GND (graduated neutral density) filter to hold back some of the light in the sky and a +1 EV this is close to what I saw.

Season's Greetings everyone. This is a difficult time to get good photographs in Northern Michigan. There are very few hours of daylight and very few days that are not cloudy and gray. I had hoped for some sun peeking through the clouds on Christmas Day so I headed to the Lake Michigan Shore. Here are a couple of the images that I got. I will try again when the light is better. These have potential with the right light. Here is the Point Betsie Lighthouse overlooking Lake Michigan.
