Sleeping Bear Dunes in Winter

I visited Sleeping Bear Dunes in January to shoot some photos in winter. It was forecast to be a cloudy day, but when I arrived, the sun broke through the clouds and highlighted the top of Empire Bluff.  After shooting photos on Lake Michigan where Otter Creek enters the lake, I traveled to Good Harbor Bay, shot some photos near Shalda Creek, and then hiked through the woods to get to the beach below Pyramid Point.
