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.
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.
Photos from along Sleeping Bear Bay:
Headed toward Sleeping Bear Point.
The lighthouse on South Manitou Island is just visible in this photo.
The north end of Sleeping Bear Dune.
The sun rising over the dune at Sleeping Bear Point.
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.
The sun finally came out yesterday after over a week of gloomy weather. The gray blanket broke up in to white, puffy clouds that moved quickly across the sky. I took the opportunity to visit Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park with my tripod and filters to take some long exposure shots.
After many years hosted on Posterous.com, I have moved the blog to WordPress. The Posterous.com site, which was so convenient, has been taken down by its new owners. If you are listening former Posterous developers and workers, thank you for coming up with a great site that prompted me to begin this site where I can keep track of, and share, my Internet discoveries.
