Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, June 2018

I spent this past week in Glen Arbor, Michigan, vacationing with my family.  Staying  in Glen Arbor had a couple of advantages for my photography. Without having to make a three hour drive to be in position before sunrise, I was able to “sleep in” until 5:00 a.m. each day. Then, I also had the pleasure of shooting sunsets, something I can’t do on my day trips to the peninsula.
