    We've had spectacular sunrises all this past week. Today, when I could get out, we got this.

    About those sunsets....

    The last couple of weeks the weather here in Michigan has been outstanding, especially after the second weekend in Sep. when it rained 8 inches.

    Lake Michigan from the other side of the Lake...from where we live in Michigan (north of Holland) we've seen some spectacular sunsets this summer, here are a couple that I've posted earlier this year:

    Mike, this communicates a sense of realism that I don't get from many shoreline shots. The colors are just right, and I can almost feel the wind and spray, and smell the weed caught on the rocks. Thank you.

    Since I love this area and grew up around Lake Mich. shots of the Lake like yours are always special to me, I like the stones in your forground and the color of the Lake, I can hear the sound of the waves as we can hear them at our home often as it is a 10 min walk to the beach.
    Sometimes when it's really rough and stirred up it's not as clear as your pic shows.
    I went swimming yesterday as the water is 67...barely bearable, but great for this time of year.
