Sleeping Bear Photo Shoot

Up at what my friend Mel calls “O dark early,” to travel to the Leelanau Peninsula to take some photos.  I wanted to be there before sunrise, which was about 7:15 a.m. So, I was up at 3:40 a.m. and out the door by 4:00 a.m. It was 3 degrees when I set up my tripod in a field overlooking Glen Lake.  I was rewarded with this photo. Not a bad start to the day.glen-lake-6151

From there, I headed to Glen Haven to walk along the shore of Sleeping Bear Bay to the point.  But first, I stopped to take a couple of photos along D.H. Day Farm Road.

Next to Shalda Creek where it flows into Good Harbor Bay.

Along M-72, on my way to Traverse City, I spotted these fruit trees and had to stop.
