Angry Lake Michigan

The “Big Lake” has been angry the past few days, with red flags warning swimmers not to go into the water. The lake has, sadly, claimed 19 people so far this year.  These photos taken yesterday at the Point Betsie lighthouse show the power and the beauty of the lake.

Diversey Harbor at Dawn

In Chicago this weekend, I went to Diversey Harbor to catch the sunrise, envisioning a photograph at dawn with the windmill-evoking sculpture “Chevron,” by John Henry. Here are the results.
