Old Pier Near Evanston, Illinois

Last week I posted an Instagram’d image onto my Facebook page of the same location as picture above.  I had gone out to scout for some early-morning sunrise locations, and I’ve found it’s much easier to explore when the sun is up than when it’s not.

So, just North of the Grosse Point Lighthouse is this small pier that has fallen on hard times. Currently the pier is just a collection of weather-beaten posts sticking out of the water, but it can still make for an interesting foreground.

This image was taken about forty-five minutes before the sun peaked over the horizon.  It was supposed to be partly cloudy on this morning, so I was hoping for more colors from the sun reflecting on clouds in the sky, but it obviously didn’t work out that way.

However, I still very much enjoy the image, and the tranquility it offers.
