A few weeks ago I traveled to Northern Michigan to explore the area and make images of the autumn colors. It was right around the “peak” time where the leaves of trees offer the best they have to offer. Amusingly, one of my favorite pictures from that journey isn’t of trees or leaves.
Arriving at the Point Betsie Lighthouse near Frankfort, Michigan, a storm was rolling across Lake Michigan several miles away from shore. As the massive storm cloud blew itself North, the setting sun was revealed behind it. Since the thunderstorm had kicked up the waves, it made for quite an unique experience of a bright sun setting below the clouds, but still these harsh waves slamming against the shoreline.
