Windy morning on Lake Superior

It had rained hard during the night and started clearing around sunrise.  The breaking clouds were beautiful blues, grays, and soft orange tones as they swiftly blew in off of Lake Superior.  White caps on the choppy waves could be seen far out onto the lake and as they rushed ashore.  Grand Marias’s north light station is on the horizon.  With this image, I wanted to capture the vastness of the view I had, of the broad expanse of the lake and big sky.

Laker on the horizon

Jill, Karen, and I stopped to visit McGulpin Point lighthouse but it wasn’t open for visitors until the following week.  So we walked the short distance along the path through the woods to the water.  Lake Michigan’s northeastern most tip makes up this part of the Mackinac Straits.  On the horizon I saw a laker making its way, seemingly so slowly, along the top of the water while whitecapped waves washed upon the shore toward us.

Poitou donkeys

These two were curious as I approached to take their picture.  First, as I walked up to the fence to get close-up shots, then later as I drove slowly by, stopped as I saw them atop the hill looking down.  The flock of birds (Starlings?) had good timing as they flew through the frame of several shots, this one being my favorite.
